I’m a trained artist, writer and actress. Reading and writing funny picture books with beautiful illustrations steered my passion to becoming an educated author and artist. I love to draw and paint dogs and any animal for that matter. In my college days I studied illustration and design and how to teach kids about art until I received a master’s degree. I taught high schoolers for just shy of twenty years until one day my life went back to the dogs. I decided to dogsit to support my writing and drawing habit full-time. My favorite mediums are acrylics, pen, colored pencil and digital art. I live near Philadelphia, PA with my family and enjoy running and visiting cold places.
