A creative industry professional for 30+ years, I began my career as a production artist for a fantastic promotional products company, originally in Gloucester, MA. Here I had the opportunity to grow and become a senior designer, over my 10 years there. Working with 40+ other creatives, it was hands down the best job. We created fun whimsical hand-drawn designs and patterns to decorate promotional items. I made lasting friendships with others working here. While at this job, I dreamed of creating children’s books from my love of light-hearted illustration and meaningful storytelling.
After an additional 20 years of working in advertising and marketing, I’m returning to my dream of writing and illustrating children’s books. Creating honest stories to tell young children, through colorful whimsical characters with real problems and how they overcame challenges, lessons of ingenuity, perseverance and compassion are woven throughout.
