I'm a graphic designer, illustrator and photographer with a background in architecture. I have wanted to create children's books since I was a child myself, and can spend hours in the picture-book section of my local bookstore, being inspired by imaginative illustrations. I love New York City, avocados and new art supplies but could do without alarm clocks and spiders. I live in Victoria, British Columbia, with my husband and 3 young daughters. I dream about the energy of New York City, the allure of Paris and the style of Palm Springs on an hourly basis.
