• I’m the Illustrator Coordinator for the SCBWI-Houston chapter, working with local illustrators seeking to be published in the children’s literature market on developing their portfolios, increasing their knowledge of the children’s publishing industry, and providing opportunities for professional networking.  I love being part of the kid lit community, and beyond my role as IC I was also a moderator for the weekly #kidlitart chat on Twitter for seven years.


  • I love creating characters with gumption and humor. My favorite kinds of stories focus on what happens between people (human and animal), and those stories that capture the magic of the every day.
