I have been writing and illustrating stories ever since I was a little girl. In the hardest parts of my life, my art was a safe place for me to escape. In these moments I realized that art has the power to transform our thoughts & emotions. Once I started sharing my stories and pictures I realized that art has the power to help do this for other people too- and not only that, but art can help good ideas grow!
I studied Illustration at The University Of The Arts. I left college and went overseas to learn from people in a remote village in East Timor while helping them hold out hope after a terrible war that had happened there. I got to paint with children in the jungle and help them envision the future of their village.
10 years ago I published my first children's book, The ABC's Of Ocean City about one of my favorite places on earth. Though I put my wiring career on hold after that, the book has sold over nearly 2,000 copies. The last 10 years I have dedicated to raising my children. Along the way I have been working on 3 amazing new books with each of them that we cannot wait to share with you all!
In December of 2020 we will be releasing
"The Magical Mythical Honeybee".
