Hi, thanks for visiting!
This website displays my picture book illustrations. Creating picture books has always been my dream.
With bachelor degrees in art and science, I have enjoyed both these career directions as a layout artist, mechanical engineer, a fine artist, and a creator of hands-on science labs and art projects for grade school kids.
But telling stories with words and pictures is what I have always wanted to do, and my love of nature remains a common thread in my stories. It is the natural behavior of everything – critters, plants, kids, gravity, even paint that captivates me, and informs my stories and art. Reality is magical!
I live in the San Diego area with my family and three cats.
I am a member of The Society of Children Book Writers and Illustrators, and grateful for all the help and direction this wonderful group provides.
