I have been involved in the publishing world for many years. As a designer, and then art director at HarperCollins Children’s Books, I designed hundreds of books and have worked with renowned artists and authors. Many of my projects have been on the New York Times Best Seller’s list and have won awards, including the 2017 Newbery Medal, a Caldecott Honor, the Coretta Scott King award, and the gold medal from the Society of Illustrators.
My experience includes all facets of book making, from conceptualization through production. I especially enjoy children’s books because I love the collaborative experience–-working closely with editors, authors and artists.
In 2011 I left New York. I now live in Seattle, and continue to work as a freelance art director and designer.
