Up, Up and Away

I've done a few things in the past, from theatrical set designer and muralist  to Montessori teacher... but always in the background I pursued illustration. Not always as diligently I wanted to... but always trying to learn more and hone my skills.
Now that I have the ability to work at my craft full time, I'm trying to step up the promotional send outs to one every other month. Hopefully the persistence and crossed fingers pays off in the end! So that's what I've devoted this year to.... holding up my hand, waving my flag, Ill even dance if need be..... OK I have two left feet so that won't work!

This is the next one in the lineup! Up, up and away!

Roberta, this is a wonderful piece. There is so much action, color and happiness in the work. I watched as it grew from sketch to finished painting, and the result is filled with joy.

What a strong piece! Wonderful expression and the characters are so sweet! Great work and you should not have to dance. Your work is amazing and persistence should capture the right persons eye! Love it! :D

I actually really love how your style has developed over the past few years, Roberta. Very consistent, and I can always tell it's yours!

You have always known me to be a big fan of your work. I agree with Kathleen. We have watched you grow so much as you have honed your craft and owned your style. It's magnificent and beautifully done. You have an excellent eye for detail and it shows in each illustration and character that you do. This is wonderful and I know that you are going to get many calls for books. It's beautiful. Best.
