I have loved creating visual stories as a painter and illustrator for as long as I can remember. Growing up in Michigan, I remember tracing comic book characters and creating my own paper dolls with elaborate wardrobes and accessories. I’ve since worked professionally as a graphic designer, technical illustrator, and watercolor artist. As my grandchildren came along I wanted to create something truly special for them. That was the beginning of my children’s picture books.
I so enjoy bringing authors’ stories to life through illustration, creating personalized stories for my grandchildren, and sharing the painting techniques I’ve developed over the years. Please get in touch if you’d like to collaborate. I’d love to hear from you!
