I was born and raised in south Florida. I think I always enjoyed drawing and was fortunate to have a creative mother and enthusiastic art teachers in school. I attended the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore where I studied painting, printmaking and sculpture.
I spent many years as a designer, in-house illustrator, part-time gallery artist and full-time dreamer. I dreamt about creating and illustrating children’s books. In 1997, I finally realized my dream and have been eternally thankful for a career in children’s books.
I currently live in the beautiful town of Asheville, NC.
