I am an illustrator of animals, food, patterns, and all kinds of fun things.

After a decade of living in the Boston area, I moved with my family to an 1800s farmhouse in a small town in western New Hampshire. My studio window overlooks our orchard of apple, pear, and peach trees. My need to create drives pretty much everything I do—from baking my own bread to refinishing furniture to drawing illustrations for my latest project.

I graduated from Syracuse University with a BFA in Illustration and spent several years as an in-house product designer before starting my own business, The Patterned Peacock. I license my art to several markets and my work can be found on wrapping paper, gift bags, greeting cards, scrapbooking paper, list pads, invitations, quilting fabric, and more.

My licensing work is represented by Pink Light Design. Please contact my agent at marybeth@pinklightdesign.com to see my latest art or to discuss a project.

Clients include Creative Memories, Magnet Works, Mpix, Gina B. Designs, Orange Circle Studio, Studio E Fabrics, Thomas Jeunesse, and Tri Land Corporation.
