I am inspired by beautiful art and stories of survivors.
I love nature, acts of kindness and illustrating fun stories that also inspire.
Besides illustrating children’s picture books I also enjoy oil painting – mostly portraits.
My grandchildren are the subjects and recipients of most of my paintings. I also do commission work.
I was a grandmother when I decided to go back to school to study illustration and learn to oil paint.
Before that I worked as a freelance graphic designer and continue to do occasional graphic design work.
Every morning before starting to work in my studio I can be found in my garden – Trying to help things grow in this Southern Utah desert.
It is my family that brings me the greatest joy and fulfillment – now adding great-grandchildren to the fold.
