Tips on Vacationing in Europe This Summer. Recent news about the euro, Uber and baggage size prompt questions from travelers

The image is driven by rope used for her hair, coins for her earrings, maps of Europe and various data pertaining to Europe. Look close enough, you'll even see portions of vintage returned bank checks used.

BILLBOARD ART and HAND-LETTERING COMMISSION






(A throwback project from a few years ago) Several weeks ago, I received a call from the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. They were nearing the end of compiling their latest, 2nd floor exhibit featuring all new artifacts, videos and music spanning several decades. From 1965 – present. Their creative team thought I might be a good fit for this campaign and commissioned me to create 3 illustrations. A billboard, an illustrated version of their existing logo, and a vertical and horizontal print ad were rendered. It was a hit upon delivery and continues to be successful campaign for them. Cut paper, collage and mixed media.

Things I'll Never Say



























NEW BOOK COVER ART: Created for "Things I'll Never Say: Stories About Our Secret Selves" - An anthology of stories from various writers and contributors. Many thanks to Candlewick Press for the commission. The book will be published and available March 24, 2015.

Acclaimed author Ann Angel brings together fifteen writers for young adults who have unique perspectives on secrets – do they make you stronger or weaker, do they alter your world when revealed? Maybe they compartmentalize your life into what you're willing to share and what you aren’t. 

I used my daughter as the visual reference and model for this cover art. Cut paper, collage and mixed media.

SEE THIS ORIGINAL work at my upcoming EXHIBITION "Paper Cuts"
