For picture books, graphic novels, and other illustrated work, I am seeking clients who are both authors and illustrators. My tastes are diverse, ranging from sophisticated to quirky to gently humorous. I am interested in art in all mediums, but especially appreciate a smart use of color and perspective.

I also represent select nonfiction for children and young adults, especially projects about STEM or history with age-appropriate hooks and series potential.
