This blog follows my work as a Caricaturist, Silhouettist and Portrait Artist, as well as a Writer/Illustrator of children's books!
I am a Children's Book Writer/Illustrator, Silhouettist, Caricature and Portrait Artist/and Singer/Songwriter. As a kid I loved drawing and I loved drawing faces more than anything! Another one of my loves was reading, and I remember with fondness reading over and over the whole series of Oz books! Which are the reasons I always wanted to do portraits and to illustrate children's books!
I studied Illustration and children's books at Umass at Dartmouth. I love traveling throughout New England doing portraits, caricatures and silhouettes at festivals, historic houses, weddings, parties and special events.
I have many illustrations in various publications and have authored and illustrated two books: Kamal's Day(available at www.bahaibookstore.com) and Babysitter Blues (available at www.onevoice.com and www.barnesandnoble.com)
Other books I have illustrated:
Imperfect Pilgrim, written by Ronald Tomanio published by One Voice Press available from One Voice Press.
Jamila Does Not Want a Bat In Her House, written by Phyllis Ring, puclished by Bellwood Press - soon to be available at www.bahaibookstore.com
Contact me directly for book signings, school and library visits sharing my illustration and book work.
I'm also available for cutting silhouettes or drawing live caricatures or pencil portraits at your event, or for commissioned silhouettes, caricatures, portraits or illustrations for your personal or marketing needs.
