“Walkies“ my debut picture book as an author/illustrator (PageStreet Kids, May 2024)
and “Happy Christmas, Dears Mars” written by Penny Parker Klostermann (Henry Holt, Fall 2024)
I'm currently happily illustrating and finalizing:
a board book series as author/illustrator called "Peek & Boo" for Sourcebooks (Fall 2025)
