She is a mom of two, a college professor and works out of a studio above the best pie in the world.

ARTIST STATEMENT

  • I like to play with words and images in both traditional and digital medium. I am always up for experimentation and trying something new. I am an illustrator, author and animator and love to tell stories no matter the medium. I’d really like someone to send me a story that is super dark where I would get to illustrate trolls and scary stuff sometime – though I like to illustrate almost anything. I love the SCBWI, and I am the Illustrator Coordinator for the Canada East Chapter.
