My Process

I use a variety of block printing and stamping techniques to create my images. Most of my illustrations are hand-colored with oil pastels. My newer work is created by printing several blocks in different colors for a more retro style. Thanks to modern technology, I use materials that allow me to carve my blocks quickly and meet tight deadlines. My work can be delivered digitally if necessary.

I've recently added watercolor to my illustration work. My watercolors are bright and colorful, filled with quirky characters, woodland charm, crafty goodness and green themes.
