Billie discovered her passion for illustration during a fateful exchange year in France, when she broke her leg and was confined to the house with nothing to do. She started drawing and hasn’t looked back!
When she returned to the United States, Billie enrolled at the Santa Fe University of Art and Design, where she graduated with a BA in Fine Arts. Today, she lives in Queens, New York, and her French is not the best but she’s so happy to have found a career in illustration. Billie has had the opportunity to work on a range of projects, from children’s books and cover art to surface patterns, stationary and board games. She draws and paints both digitally and traditionally, but her favorite method is to layer watercolor, gouache and colored pencil to create richly textured illustrations with soft colors and lots of detail.
