I started my art career at my grandfather's secretary desk at age six. By ninth grade I had developed my own unique characters.  Round noses, big smiles, bright colors, and artistic patterns are my signature stamp. In the years to follow, I designed business and greeting cards, logos and t-shirts. In 1992, I had the privilege to collaborate with Paula Burns and North Country Books. I illustrated Abbey's search for Cooper and followed up with the sequel, Winterfest with Abbey and Cooper, in 2002.  Today I am working on illustrating and writing my own delightful, funny and colorful children's books.
