ARTIST STATEMENT

  • I write in many genres, but I’m focused on picture books these days.  I have published movie reviews, newspaper articles, and poetry.  I do not limit myself to any one genre, but allow my writing to go where it needs to flow naturally.  I’ve illustrated locally, including a comic strip in my hometown high school and college newsletters.  I also have a RedBubble shop set up for some of my work. You can learn more about me at my website.
