The best adventures start with imagination.


Welcome to Quills and Brushes, my illustration portfolio. 


Inspiration is limitless; creativity is fearless; a meeting of the minds is progress; follow-through is success. My work is an extension of my life experience: more than forty professional years, and a well-established skill.

The rug shown is called Branches and it's 10'x14'. It is my homage to Anna Maria Garthwaite, one of the top silk designers in mid-18th century London (in Spitalfields, the once great center for silk mercers, weavers, and merchants in the East End.)
