• I’ve been illustrating and designing professionally for over 30 years, but it wasn’t until after my daughter was born that I realized my illustrations and I belonged in children’s publishing. I fell in love with children’s books, reading to her and traveling to magical lands for hours on end. We all but lived at the library and I still spend a lot of time there, but now that my daughter is in college, the librarians have caught on that the picture books are all mine. When not at the library, I’m exploring the forests of Tahoe for story inspiration.
