About Me

The Short Version

Jennifer is an award winning illustrator and children’s book author.   She has illustrated picture books, children’s magazines, greeting cards, party ware and educational materials.  She authored and illustrated four books for Scholastic. The best selling of which, "May I Please Have a Cookie?" has sold over one million copies.

The Slightly Longer Version

Like most illustrators, Jennifer has been drawing incessantly most of her life.  Her first masterpieces, “Red Crayon on White Ottoman” and “Permanent Marker on Hard Wood Floor” met with decidedly harsh criticism.  But by the time she was ten years old, she had a budding career as a commercial artist.  She had a small but lucrative side business selling drawings to classmates for 25 cents each.

Mission Statement

I believe that successful illustrations work in concert with the printed words. Text and pictures should work together to convey thoughts and ideas more fully than either can alone. My goal is to work together with art directors and editors to create appealing and engaging illustrations that speak to both children and adults. I strive to create interesting and colorful characters that audiences can empathize with. And to do so with an attention to detail and with a consideration for the commerical and professional aspects of each project.
