I am an Illustrator, teacher, and artist on the Oregon Coast. I live with my husband, my children, and a flock of chickens.My mother ran a craft business, when I was small. She built me my first studio when I was eight. It had art supplies, a clothesline to pin paintings up to dry, and a tray of old newspaper stamps. I was always encouraged to produce art with words.​I have worked hard to increase my knowledge of illustration by traveling to Hollins University and studying under some of the best children's book illustrators working today. I have received a Master's certification in Children's Book Illustration and a Masters of Fine Arts in Children's Book Writing and Illustrating. I am always looking forward to improving my skills and starting my next project.
