My Bio

I studied art in high school and college but didn't ever believe I'd make a go of it. Instead, I focused on building a career as an author of fantastical tales. Meanwhile, it had been a long closely-held dream of mine to become an illustrator. I didn't think the dream would actually happen. Not until a fellow creative and friend invited me to join the illustrator team at Qamber Kids. Since then, I've had the opportunity to help with several projects. I recently completed my first fully illustrated children's book for author Melissa Keir. While I've chosen to manage projects more of late, I still find time to help Qamber Kids with various projects. I'll feature new pieces and sketches as I complete them and look forward to connecting with my fellow artists. Happy creating!

Wow, this piece outshines the others by far. It showcases your talent with contrasting light and darkness. The city in the background is just how I imagine the post apocalyptic society to resemble, a backwards vision to our modern eyes. Some of the background could be fine tuned, I suppose. But the focus is on Avalon, and the eye is immediately drawn where it is supposed to be. Evocative as well as pleasing to the eye, this cover manages to display the direction Ava's character is heading toward. A confident and powerful Mage. Now I just can't wait for the third book to come out!
