My artwork has always had a narrative quality. That focus on story and the amount of time I was spending painting murals for children's rooms has, naturally, led me to my style of illustration. I hesitate to call it children's, because it doesn't have to be just for kids. I am not illustrating words, but I do try to tell a story with each of these paintings or illustrations. Even though I have done some freelance illustration, none of the images in the story portfolio were commissioned. You can get to the portfolio by clicking on the sea monster to your right. I am often inspired by my children and some goofy drawing they have done, or I am trying to capture some of the wonder that comes from being a child. Most of the paintings or illustrations in the portfolio can be purchased as prints through my etsy shop, Moany and Lalla's, which you can get to through my store link above. I am also available for freelance illustration for commercial clients only. I do more than kid's stuff; please call or e-mail for assistance.
