I'm an illustrator passionate about picture books. I grew up in Panama with the jungle as my backyard. After college I spent many years in California growing two businesses and having two babies. Home is now beautiful Aachen, Germany, with my husband, two slightly bigger kids and our sweet hound dog.
I earned my BFA in textiles/screen printing at RISD in 2000. I've since worked in graphic design for a children's publication, operated a mural and fine art business around the CA Bay Area, and have been a painter & maker of small things since I can remember. I am currently following my love for illustrating and writing children's books.
I work mostly in gouache paint and color pencil with collage elements, and digital finishing. My inner seven year old and my kids remind me to stay curious, play, and keep dreaming.

"When I updated my film production company's website I needed something that communicated our brand and was true to our origins. Devon was fabulous during the entire process, from start to finish. She was enthusiastic, a great communicator, and an intuitive and skilled designer. She understood my intentions, and delivered proofs, sketches, and final artwork on time and within budget. The logo she designed has graced the film credits, posters, and other promotional materials on all of our films, including a documentary featured on the 'In the Heart of the Sea' dvd (Warner Brothers), another that is airing on PBS this year, and a third that swept the 'Best Children's Program' awards at film festivals."
