Recently, after raising two children in the Catskill Mountains near Woodstock, New York, I moved to Western Massachussetts where I live on a magical ten acre kettle pond with my husband, a bunch of overly friendly little fish and a majestic blue heron.
Currently, I am plugging away on a few picture book dummies. One passion of mine is presenting timely environmental concepts in kid friendly ways.
I have also been devoting a huge amount of time learning how to best empower and support children whose families may be blended, divorced…or very happily married!
I am actively seeking representation as a picture book author-illustrator.
This website is exclusively devoted to my work for children. For more about my music, fine art and landscape design please visit:
