I believe it's never too late to pursue what you love! After receiving an MFA in visual studies, I went on to teach studio art and art history, work as a sales trainer for a major insurance company (a green reptile is involved), and to sell real estate for a living. Not all at the same time of course! Now, I apply my work-life experience to my long neglected passion, writing and illustrating stories for children. With the heart of an educator, I write and illustrate as a way to inspire, and nurture children while making it fun! I bring my work-life experience to all that I do, so am a self-starter, and a team player. As a way to expedite my development, I attend workshops for writers and illustrators of children’s books including: SCBWI conferences, Writers Digest workshops, Highlights Foundation workshops, and additional online training relevant to my craft.
I'm an active member of the national Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). You can view my online portfolio by clicking on this link.
