Now that the formal stuff is out of the way...
I ADORE MY JOB! I am thankful to have a job I love...illustrating and writing for children!
My favorite part of the creative process is creating characters that give you something back...a smile, a hug, or a giggle. I love to write books that engage kids and adults; some with easy rhyme, and colorful illustrations. Any time spent reading with a child is priceless!
As a digital illustrator, my first sketches might start on paper but, my final artwork is finished in Photoshop or Illustrator. I now have an iPad Pro and use Procreate for some of my sketch projects. You can see a few videos on the PROCESS page!
When I'm not working in my studio, you can find me cycling, walking, crocheting, knitting...or on the road to Northern Virginia to see my family :D
For now, I reside in the growing area of Danville, Virginia, along with my hubs; Lexi, the dog, and Josie, my floofy cat.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my website! I hope you found a few illustrations that gave you the smile or hug you needed today!
