Biography

I began in a small yellow house in Torrance, California. I was painfully shy and quiet, and drew all the time. I made up stories in my head while I was drawing, and still do.

I’ve learned everything on the job or on my own. My checkered past includes being a dog trainer, vet tech, janitor, technical illustrator, graphic artist, toy and textile designer. When I got a job in the art department of the Seattle P-I newspaper, I felt I’d won the lottery. I got to do illustrations every week, draw maps (I love making maps) and other newspapery-graphics. I loved working at the paper, and when the 146 year old Hearst newspaper was closed in 2009, I went down with the ship.

My favorite food is popcorn, my children are animals, and I’m as stretchy as Gumby from yoga.
