Whenever motherhood allows (read: whenever Hank is asleep)–I have another passion.


I am an aspiring author/illustrator of children’s books, including both picture books and chapter books. I currently have multiple manuscripts in the submission process. Please contact me through my Contact form to request more sample illustrations as I don’t yet have a complete online portfolio. I am always willing to consider new projects! I prefer to work in wax pastel and watercolor.

Here are a few example pieces:

Hopefully I will be able to share links to my own books here someday! I am never without inspiration for a good story, thanks to my daily entertainment from Hank!
