• I live in Tahoe surrounded by nature—a never-ending source of inspiration for my art. Although I’ve been illustrating and designing professionally for over 30 years, it wasn’t until after my daughter was born that I fell in love with children’s books and realized that’s where my work belongs. Illustrating for kids fills my days with wonder, joy, and new discoveries. I hope my art inspires the same in others.

    Fun Fact: I have created animated GIFs from many of my nature illustrations. Click here to check them out!
