Under a spell

A sucker for ornamental grasses, sugar snap peas and yummy Sunday breakfasts out about town, I share a home with my husband Gary on the edge of a sparkling kettle pond in Western Massachusetts. I'm lucky to be surrounded by gardens, frogs, ducks, cat, owls, fireflies, water lilies n' kayaks. 

Visit my website to view my fine art, listen to one of my tunes (many environmental in nature), and learn about my landscape design and fine gardening. 

Note: my adult art has been described as provocative or disturbing (which makes me pretty happy). It is either for adults or really mature, amazing, brilliant kids (fair warning)

Thanks so much!



The Litter Bitty Critter Awakens

This past winter, Oooli, The Litter Bitty Critter broke out of her portfolio dungeon:

One moonlit night, a fantastical egg falls from a tree where it had been lovingly placed by it's Mother. Eventually, baby Oooli pops out hungry as a bear in spring. Befriended by Alice and Harry, they try to help her, offering Oooli yummy food, but it turns out Oooli only has eyes for litter. That's right...yucky 'ole litter. Yum, yum.  As in most towns world wide, Oooli soon finds plenty to eat....

As a newbie to picture book writing and illustrating, I'm percolating a few other wild tales. Rosie Loves Butterflies and Ish Kabibble Shining Sun are coming soon.

Please stay tuned....

A note about a special dog,Tallulah
