“That Fish on Your Dish,” children’s book

Born and raised in Chicago, I studied at the Columbia College of Chicago and quickly gained employment as a commercial animator for cartoons broadcast on national television. I got serious about painting after moving to Philadelphia a few years ago. My animation training lends a sense of movement and whimsical feeling to my paintings.

Little Runner is painted with acrylic and nail polish on a gallery wrapped 6” x 6” canvas. The painting is featured in the children’s book, That Fish on Your Dish, by Ellen Marcus.
