About Me


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.
