author & illustrator


Philadelphia, PA


I'm part of a family of artists. My husband painted this portrait of me. My son is also an artist, and my daughter is a choreographer and dancer.

I have an MFA in painting from Hunter College. My abstract artwork has been exhibited in solo and group shows in galleries including White Columns and the Whitney Museum of American Art. I live in Philadelphia, home of the fabulous Barnes Foundation.

For information on how I work, please see my conversation with Julie Danielson at Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast. To read my essay on the value of public libraries, please visit the Children's Book Council.
