I’m a storyteller. I make picture books that tell stories that aren’t often told, whether they be cultural or societal. They are rich, colorful, and touch on universal stories to the masses through specific, small details and moments. I work through the belief that we’re all connected by our relationships and our emotions, and all of the small moments in life that are captured in my illustrations.
Born and raised in New York, I am a first-generation child of immigrants. I spent a great deal of my childhood years scribbling and sketching, dreaming and imagining. Today, I tell stories through picture books.
I received my BA in English Literature at Stony Brook University and my MFA in Illustration at the Hartford Art School.
When I'm not in front of a drawing board, I've got my camera in tow, taking pictures while hiking, and running from squirrels.
