When I was little, my favorite pages of any coloring book were the blank end papers. There, I could draw whatever I dreamed up. When I got bigger, I studied art at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. When I realized that sharing an understanding of ecology was my driving passion, I also studied science teaching at Antioch New England. Now everything is coming together as I’m working on books illustrating that invite children into the world of nature. Teresa Kietlinski at Bookmark Literary Agency represents my work. Contact her at email@example.com. And my heart still skips a beat when I see a blank page for drawing on.
