• I’m a long-time lover of books and illustrations–an interest which has grown since having my own children. Writing is my strongest area, but I am developing my illustrations skills, too. Professionally, my background is in coastal wetland science, but a move returning my family to Houston provided the opportunity to stay home with my kids and pursue my dreams.


  • A member of three critique groups–two for writing and one for illustration–I’m focused on developing my craft. I work in both traditional and digital media, sometimes combining the two! My first love is watercolor, followed by sketching/paining on my iPad and a developing sense of collage. I continue to feel as if I am in my artistic adolescence: a time of self-discovery, excitement, trepidation, and lots of growth. It’s a great great feeling to see how my skills have grown and know that there’s so much possibility for future development!
