What others have to say…
“Born and raised in New York City, I started my professional comic book career in the early 90s with Milestone Comics as a colorist. I have several creator owned works such as the fantasy-adventure comic, book series ‘Malice in Ovenland’, (Published by Rosarium Publishing), ‘The Anansi Kids and the All Saints’ Day Adventure’, and the children’s book ‘The Island Cats of Cunga Ree.’
In addition to being an Independent Comic Book Creator, I’m also an accomplished digital painter, with my work shown nationally at various Art Shows annually.
I am most adept at creating characters and stories that provide a safe and fun way to inspire young children, especially girls. Through colorful flights of fun and fancy, I hope to encourage a stronger sense of self-love, friendship, and a hunger to embrace all things new and different in the world around them.”
