“Art enhances the sense of wonder. And wonder is respect for life.” William Steig

Hello! Thank you for stopping by. I am an illustrator and aspiring writer, with a passion for the relationship of art and story in children’s literature.

Some words to describe my loves: deep curiosity, disappearing into stories, being playful, kindness, whimsy, magical realism, wonder, joy, awe, creating a place for dreaming, community… I’m very interested in how we connect and share space on this planet. To me, art is a magical way to facilitate that happening/awareness.

I am delighted with the booming kid’s graphic novel field. The graphic novels hold a special thrill for me with their layout and panels being such an engaging way to move a story forward and create interesting imagery.

Favorite jobs: college art professor, working at an independent bookstore, baker, and most importantly: mom to 2 wonderful souls!

Favorite motto: “Keep heading into the mystery.”
