I’m an internationally renowned children’s book author and illustrator and have illustrated stories from Italy, Latvia, Russia, and Sweden. My first book, The Bremen Town Musicians, was a Caldecott Honor book.
I’m the recipient of the 1985 Ezra Jack Keats Fellowship. I’ve taught at numerous institutions including the Massachusetts College of Art and Design and Harvard/Radcliffe Seminars as well as the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and SMFA-Tufts.
Experience firsthand the wonder of children’s book creation in one of my classes! You’ll work in a small-group environment to produce your own children’s book “dummy.”
Welcome to a selection of my current work. I’ve always loved drawing animals and am currently exploring the idea of animal friends. Could a fox and owl be friends? What do frogs have for tea? Just wondering…
I’ve shown my work in exhibitions at the Concord Free Public Library, the DeCordova Museum in Massachusetts, the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston and the Umbrella Arts Center.
