I'm an cartoonist and illustrator living in Burlington, VT.
My most recent book is Charlotte Bronte Before Jane Eyre, Center for Cartoon Studies Presents series, will be published in September 2019 by Disney/Hyperion. Also in September, Secret Acres will publish Persephone’s Garden, a collection of autobiographical comics that have appeared in the New Yorker and other places.
I began working on excavations as illustrator in 1998 and have worked on sites in Greece, Crete, Turkey, Israel, Cyprus, Syria, and Lebanon. I continue to work in Greece every year. My illustrations have been published in several books and many articles.
Many of my personal comics reflect a career in archaeology and family life. Greek Diary is about working on a dig and traveling with children. My drawings about my children were published regularly on Muthamagazine.com and were nominated for an Ignatz Award at the Small Press Expo in 2016.
Another project, Alle Ego, is about my first trip to Greece and how it launched my work in the direction of archaeology. A draft of this book won the MoCCA Arts Festival Award in NY in 2016. I drew most of it during a residency at La Maison des Auteurs in Angouleme, and I plan to return to work on this book in the future.
I’m currently working on a middle grade adventure set after the eruption of Thera in Late Bronze Age Greece.
