ARTIST STATEMENT

  • My favorite line anyone ever said was at an SCBWI conference, and it’s stayed with me as my mantra ever since: “Give them something to grow with”.  I like to work on pieces that help people understand themselves, that show kids they can be the person they were born to be, that the world is in fact full to the brim with magic.
