I am a writer, artist, blogger, and home-school mama of four wildebeests. My art
and designs have been featured in juried shows, publications, logos, and
maps in the Pacific Northwest.
I grew up under the shade of a whole family of picture book authors and illustrators.
My walls are lined with children's books. My drawers are full of scribbles and notebooks.
I have aspired to become an author since I was pencil-high.
I studied visual storytelling with art director and UCSD professor Joy Chu,the art of making words with pictures. I started sketching daily, and found not just words,
but another way to stories - with art.
One of my latest projects is a push to illustrate
an entire year of kindergarten sight words.
