My Portfolio Page contains a few examples of my illustrations. I started out as a fashion illustrator, and I still absolutely love doing fashion illustrations, especially when drawing from a fabulous live model.

Another favorite genre of mine is drawing children. I love the world of whimsy and child-like wonder, whether I am working in simple black ink or marker or full color gouache paints. My children’s artwork and illustrations have been used on CD music covers, magazine illustrations and greeting cards.

I have also done cartoons all my life. When something good, bad, traumatic, or funny has happened to me, I have chronicled that event in cartoons. What I have shown here are a few cartoons from my IBS blog (ChronicallyMe.com), and book Chronically Me: Flushing Out My Life And Times, A Memoir In Comics. When I cartoon, I can use my snarky sense of humor and observational skills to express myself, and it is a great venting process.

Finally, I have included coloring book pages. Creating coloring books is a relatively new discovery for me. I loved doing original artwork consisting of fashion figures and backgrounds for my book, Color In Fashion: A Stylish Adult Coloring Book. I am currently working my next book, and this new book involves the wonder and fantasy of childhood.
