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


I write and illustrate children’s books. My first illustrated picture book is called The Spill. Written by Jacqueline Leigh, it is due out in June of 2018 from Mascot Books.


I am always up for new projects! You can check out my online illustrator portfolio here:

I like to work in watercolor, wax pastel, and I also love a good dip pen with acrylic ink. I do some digital artwork and I love hand-lettering.

I am never without inspiration for a good story, thanks to my daily entertainment from Hank!
