If you are familiar with my work already, you may have noticed that my portfolio page shows very little new material from the last couple of years or so. That doesn't mean that I've stopped working, though; I've just shifted my focus, choosing to prioritize my children's picture books as the primary outlet for my creative energy. I am sharing here a few illustrations from my first book, A Sheep and a Dream. I wrote the story ten years ago, but didn't start illustrating it until six years later, and even then only intermittently. Sometime last year, I finally decided that my dream had been far too long deferred, and I began to devote every free moment, few as there were, to painting sheep. Now the illustrations are finished, the manuscript has been revised and re-revised, and I am looking for an agent to help me get it all in print.
Meanwhile, I've got some catching up to do--six other manuscripts waiting to be illustrated, three rough drafts waiting to be finished, and a couple dozen nebulous ideas, plot-less characters, and floating titles waiting to be turned into stories. I'm about a quarter of the way into the illustrations for my second book, so check back soon to see some new images!
