Rappy's Back!


Rappy the Raptor is a series of books, written by Dan Gutman. I recently completed the illustrations for the sixth (fourth leveled reader) Rappy story. Rappy and His Favorite Things will be available in April, 2019. Here are some pics of the art in progress.

Rappy the Raptor’s class has to write poems about their favorite things for Poetry Week, and the best poet will win a cupcake! Will Rappy discover he’s a poet and he didn’t even know it? 


A NEW look for the Studio Blog...

So, we moved to another town. That means another studio and a fresh start. I’m using this time to refresh, renew and re-create who I am as an artist. I’ve been blessed with a career of great connections and projects in the picture book circle. I’ve dipped my toes in the “licensed art” pool for some time, now. I’ve carved out a little time for miniature painting. It’s all good. Some of my other interests have been begging for more time and a chance to play a bigger part in the mix. There comes a time when you reflect on the past, embrace the creative spirit and dive deep into a new direction. I’ll try to post more, update more and become more visible on this new site. That’s the plan. I hope you will check in to see what’s new.
