I graduated from the Ontario College of Art (now OCADU) and plunged into the world of retail advertising. After ten years I said, “Enough already! I want to do something fun and creative!” I returned to my kindergarten roots as a potato carver and took up linoleum cutting with a vengeance. Many years later, I have carved enough linoleum to tile most of North America and I continue to create whimsical lino-cut illustrations for adult and children’s publishers, magazines, advertising and more.

My scanned linoleum prints are digitally colored, the perfect marriage between traditional and digital technologies. I am an award-winning illustrator who loves translating words into pictures and am writing and illustrating my own children’s stories, at present works-in-progress. For relaxation I paint oil portraits on canvas and ipad. I was thrilled to be included in the Creative Boom magazine article, “20 exciting illustrators to follow in 2020!”
