  • My desire to enter the field of picture book illustration was planted when I began working as an elementary school library media teacher in 2004. In 2010 I self-published a regionally focused picture book, Over in the Valley. It has received overwhelming approval by parents and teachers in Central California where I have lived all my life. My first traditionally published book is "Patient for Pumpkins," 2014 by North Atlantic Books. I have many years of experience in fine art and graphic design, as well as elementary education.
