I am an illustrator living in Texas with my husband and Affenpinscher dog, Ragnar. I frequently visit France and visit with other artists. I love creating my artwork in my Corel digital program Painter and also in traditional watercolor and ink. Having done many private commissions and greeting cards in the past 20 years, I have been published in several children’s books and have also recently received the prestigious award, Western Writers of America Spur Award 2016 for best illustrated Children's Book Category. Detail oriented, creative, with a touch of whimsy, I was inspired by my commercial artist and teacher mother and my veterinarian father. I look forward to doing a series of children’s books and meeting new authors.
