'Write me a picture, paint me a story!' I draw for all sorts of people in my little rooftop studio and am happiest with my tongue out over a sheet or paper and some antique nibs. I'm known for my word-heavy pieces which adorn everything from book covers to ad campaigns to pie boxes and cheese and tattoos. I get with finding these jobs from my agent Bernstein and Andriulli of New York. My solo show 'If A Girl Writes Off The World' opened at the Truman Brewery, London last year and toured to Manhattan's Chelsea in Spring and Providence in Summer '07.

Walter Thompson NY & LDN, WWAV Rapp Collins, Random House, Harpercollins, Scholastic, Walker Books, Channel 4, Avon, Sage Francis,, The Times, The Observer.
