Starred Review In KIRKUS !

Podcast Interview!

Orange Regional Medical Center was voted The Most Beautiful Hospital In America 2017!  My mural was cited as enough reason the earn that honor!  I'm so glad everyone who sees it, loves it!

Junior Library Guild Award

Did you know that the world famous illustrator Norman Rockwell was born in NewYork City?

When I learned of the students' efforts at West Side High School to have the street where Norman Rockwell was born renamed in his honor, I immediately contacted them and gave them my support. They were kind enough to invite me and representatives of the Norman Rockwell Museum to the dedication...a great event.



I recently illustrated "The Boy Who Touched The Stars" by

José M. Hernández and it has already won many accolades.  This is a truly inspirational story for young and old alike.  A lot of research was involved but as always, I loved learning some new things and sharing my pictures with readers.

​It's always great to be able to give inspiration and advice to

young artists.  In this interview I talk about my career as

well as give some advice on being  a successful artist and illustrator.

I was commissioned to paint a mural for the new Children's Emergency Department at Orange Regional Medical Center in Middletown, NY.   The 7 foot by 30 foot acrylic painting greets patients, families and visitors to the new ER.  I decided to use native forest creatures as fable characters so visitors and patients will be able to see stories in the landscape.  Visit www.fabledforestmural.blogspot.com to see videos of me painting the mural!
