- A little about my artwork: I interpret the words written on a page by telling the story behind the story working with pen and ink, watercolor and Photoshop, I fuse old techniques with modern ones to create a world that every drawing can speak to a child or grownups.

14th Annual SCBWI Winter Conference 2013
My Mentor Patti Stren has always said: “It’s a Bunny eat Bunny world”.
And this Friday February 1st I am going right into the bunny den that’s right it’s the 2013 14th Annual SCBWI Winter Conference.
Three days of meeting others like me, who are trying to break into the business or become more successful at it; on Friday part of the program is having your portfolio reviewed by editors, publishers, agents … I spent most of 2012 with help from Patti finding a new voice and I’m hoping it will attracted new interest in my artwork, I also recruited help from a friend of mine Simone who is a very talented artist. We sat down together one Friday evening a couple of months back in the New York Public Library and put together my new portfolio it was an experience letting someone else take control and see things through their eyes .
But thanks to Simone I also put together a dummy picture book for them to see it was her encouragement that put the fire under my … to complete the book.
So I am now armed with my new portfolio, new postcards, I even have a new website. It’s all exciting and I am looking forward to giving the lowdown after it is all done.
