Introduction: My illustration goal is to explain what is happening and tell the story. In my work, I strive to express and embellish the written word with pictures. I am good with facial expressions, having worked extensively as a courtroom sketch artist. I have studied body language and interpretation of facial expressions, which enables me to create work that accurately portrays the story. For a book cover, the goal is also to draw attention to the book, to advertise it, and give the reader an image to help their imagination create a story in their mind. I love creating art. I enjoy the creative process, the thinking involved, the sketch to finish, and all the different mediums I can use. I love having different styles, which keeps doing my work exciting. I also enjoy people and the back and forth that comes with every job. We form a business relationship that comes from being open and communicative with each other. Even though many jobs are not face to face anymore, there is a bond and respect that forms. I appreciate honesty and clearly expressed visions that result in a job well done.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Each project is quoted differently, due to the many different requirements of each project and client.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I talk with a new client and take notes as to what they need. I will do a sketch, and show the client, to see if we are on the same page. Then I go to the color finish phase. If changes are necessary, I make them and make sure the client approves. There is an additional step in children's books. Before sketch phase, I do a "thumbnail" sketch phase, which is a page of tiny sketches in sequence, to show the flow of pages, usually on one or two pages.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I went to the Paier School of Art, where I excelled at painting and illustration. I am always learning new things and keeping up on new programs.
