I am an illustrator living in Portland, Maine with my husband, Russell French, a fabulous food photographer, a silly daughter and two crazy cats. Primarily my work has involved kids, family, animals and handwritten typography. But I am open to new subjects - always! I have accumulated over twenty years of illustration experience and a client list that is wide and varied.

I come from a family of artists - experimenting in different mediums - architecture, fine art and art education. I originally intended to be a graphic designer (my BFA is in design) but I ended up drawing all my design projects. It didn't take me too long to figure out that I needed to shift my attention. And the graphic design background proved to be essential as I use aspects of design in my illustration work every day.

I am also an adjunct professor in the illustration department at the Maine College of Art. A different kind of a challenge than the work being done here in my studio, but it definitely keeps me on my toes.
