I discovered Silhouetting a few years ago and it has become a passion I never expected to have. I love cutting profile portraits of people, especially children, out of black paper and mounting them on watercolor paper or card stock.


I am available to do silhouettes for weddings, parties and special events! And I now do Caricatures and portrait sketches as well! I have enjoyed doing silhouettes, caricatures and pencil portraits at festivals, historic houses, weddings, parties and many events over the last few years!  It’s so fun to create a silhouette, caricature or portrait in just a few minutes and see the excited reactions of my customers!

Check out my arts blog and my Etsy shop to see more of my work from some of these events!


I also write and illustrate children’s books. I have always loved collecting children’s books since even before I had children of my own.


I have a book for middle-school aged children that I wrote and illustrated called Babysitter Blues available as a kindle ebook on

I am a silhouette artist, writer/illustrator and musician. As a kid I loved drawing faces more than anything! I studied visual design and illustration at Umass at Dartmouth, Art Ed. in Maine at UNE, Biddeford, USM, Gorham and Hartwood School of Art in Kennebunk, Maine.
