Welcome! I'm an author/illustrator. My latest book is LILY'S CAT MASK.

I'm part of a family of artists, living in Philadelphia, PA. My husband is a painter. My son is also an artist, and my daughter is a choreographer and dancer.

I have an MFA in painting from Hunter College. My abstract artwork has been exhibited in solo and group shows in galleries including White Columns and the Whitney Museum of American Art.

For information on how I work, please see my conversation with Julie Danielson. And download my list of books here!
