I have a love of the fantastical, curiosity for everything, and a passion to construct images that are interesting to the viewer and entertaining to create. Born and raised along the Hudson River, I transplanted to Boston in 1998 to begin studies at The Art Institute of Boston (now LUCAD – Lesley University College of Art and Design),
and graduated in 2002 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Illustration.
My work uses a variety of materials including artist grade acrylics and Dr. Ph Martin’s Radiant Concentrated Watercolors (with the occasional use of Winsor & Newton Watercolor). Occasionally use of cut-paper, newspaper, sharpies are thrown into the mix for fun.
For this project I created an abbreviated version of Little Red Riding Hood, without words. This winterized version shows Little Red hunting the wolf, who is on his way to grandma's house. I provide no ending to the story and leave it to the viewer to decide what happens after Red meets the Wolf. I used a mix of watercolor, pen, and colored pencil. My goal for this project was to create something fun for me as the artist and also fun for the person looking at my book. With such a vast audience that these books reach, there's no way to direct it towards one specific type of person. Most people though, have heard or seen the story of Red Riding Hood.
I work as a freelance artist, as well as a manager of a graphic design studio. My motivation is to create artwork that is illustrative, sometimes whimsical, and very rarely serious. I also create self-published children's book via createspace/amazon.
