“ have been illustrating for children for over 15 years. I have designed a variety of products including children’s toys and games, children’s clothing and fabrics, children’s wall art and of course picture books. I am inspired by color, pattern, and texture and try to include all of these elements in my work. I live in a cottage in the woods outside of Atlanta, Georgia with my husband. We are surrounded by furry critters and venture out on nature walks daily which inspires my work. I like belly laughs, red licorice, and can’t go to long without a visit to the ocean.
