Hi There.....from sunny Arizona!
I'm a SCBWI AZ award-winning illustrator and a SCBWI PAL member. Two of my digital collage illustrations were commissioned by the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital in Palo Alto, CA and by the SCBWI AZ chapter. One of my surface design techniques was featured in an article I wrote titled "Wax Terrific" for the UPPERCASE magazine along with one of my illustrations. If you would like to know more about my art and how I got started, I have online interviews by the wonderful informative website Kidlit411 and an online magazine celebrating creatives from all walks of life Voyage Phoenix Magazine
Since I've earned my Bachelor of Arts degree in Education, I have coordinated, organized and led workshops celebrating book illustration, collage and helping others to discover their passions or to move them forward in their creative endeavors. I love to learn so I'm constantly studying my craft of writing and illustrating with the help of these fine organizations and online communities --SCBWI, Storyteller Academy, Julie Hedlund's 12 x 12 challenge and SVS (School of Visual Learning).
I'm currently looking for a new agent that will bring more experience in the kidlit community and illustrating projects.
I married a rocket scientist and now have two grown sons. Our house is filled with delight with the help of our little furry princess, Roxi who loves gathering my socks for treats.
Thanks for stopping by!
All the best to you,
