My work as a freelance illustrator has ranged from children’s book illustrations to commercial advertising art.
My past clients include: Klutz, Young & Rubicam, Children’s Magic Window, Sopris West, Children’s Discovery Museum San Jose, Metro Newspapers, Silicon Valley Community Newspapers, Echo Journal, Sunnyvale Chamber of Commerce, among others.
I have been working with clay for eight years. I enjoy handbuilding in particular. It’s exciting to see how my 2D work transfers into 3D work. Much like my visual journal cards, this work is deeply narrative and personal. Most of the pieces pictured are high fired to cone 10 in a gas fired kiln. I use underglazes thickly painted for the colors and a variety of high fire underglaze pens.
Inside the pages of my art journals, I have no rules. I try not to think about making ‘the perfect page’. I never remove pages, and sometimes I don’t finish pages. I may go back several times and rework pages.
