The Painted Page

This week I join three incredibly talented illustrators on a new venture, The Painted Page, where we will be illustrating Hans Christian Andersen tales. I hope you will join us each week for a new chapter, illustrated by Veronica Walsh, Jennifer Gray Olson, Carolyn Le, and me! And if you couldn't guess, this is my main character from The Ugly Duckling.

New Chapters

Boy, do I identify with this little kitten! The last few months have kept me running (and - apologies - not blogging).  This is the cover for the book I just finished illustrating for Random House: Sleeping Bootsie by Maribeth Boelts. What a great experience! I learned so much from this first book. Art Director Jan Gerardi was wonderful. And amidst castles and kittens, I finished my MFA (worth every minute of the many months it took). So now its on to new adventures: a picturebook for Eerdman's, teaching, writing, and making all the pictures roaming around in my head.
