My website




I've illustrated more than 25 books for children, including "Malala: A Hero for All" by Shana Corey,  "Moon Child" by Nadia Krilanovich, and "The Very Little Princess", by Marion Dane Bauer. "The Goldfish Yawned" (Henry Holt) is the first book that I wrote as well as illustrated. It is a winner of the Bank Street College Best Childrens Book, 2005. 
In September '12, "How Does Sleep Come?" will be published by Sourcebooks/Jabberwocky
I also illustrated "I Already Know I Love You" written by Billy Crystal which was a NY Times #1 best selling picture book. 
My work also appears on book jackets, as well as in other projects including for Delta Airlines, Lands’ End, Lord & Taylor, Peaceable Kingdom Press and Sony/BMG Music. 
My artwork has been on display at the Society of Illustrators in NYC, The New York Public Library, The Columbus Museum of Art in Ohio, Every Picture Tells a Story gallery in Los Angeles and Chemers Gallery in Orange County, CA and the Museum of Comic & Cartoon Art in NYC. 
I am an adjunct professor at the School of Visual Arts in NYC and Queens College, City University of New York.
