Born in the Sunflower state (Kansas), I’m currently living in northwest Arkansas with my husband, two cats (Lily and Luna), and a dog (Dobby).

I recently left the corporate world where I was a multimedia designer for nearly 20 years. For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to write and illustrate children’s books. Now I’m working full-time on this dream.

There has always been a cat in my house. Sometimes as many as three. It wasn’t until my early 50s that I adopted a dog from the shelter. I’m just thankful that everyone gets along!

Most of my drawings are about the antics of my furry friends, but food, flowers, and memories of a great childhood inspire me. I’m the oldest of seven children so I have lots of tales!

I would love to hear from you. If you have comments about my art or just want to say “hello,” please send me an email.
