It started with a box of 64 count crayons and an endless supply of drawing paper. My Creative Spirit began at an early age and is what led me down this life of creativity. I am a traditional artist. I draw and paint using a variety of medium including watercolor, acrylics, pen, and ink, and colored pencils. I love putting different medium together and experimenting with colors and textures. When I’m not illustrating a children’s book, I love sketching with pencil. I draw for many reasons. Sometimes I quickly sketch an idea that I believe will be eventually a character or scene in a story. I especially enjoy when I can just draw with no particular reason. The pencil takes over and images emerge that I might not have ever thought of.
