About

This blog is about doing what you love and feel you were meant to do.  It chronicles my personal experience as an artist and children’s picture book author and illustrator. I will try to share with you noteworthy things from my creative life that are interesting, helpful, funny, or fabulous. Living a creative life is a process, an evolution that begins with knowing your desires, setting goals, speaking your intentions and Leaning into your dreams. I hope this chronicle will encourage you to Lean as well.

Back Bio on the “Late Bloomer”

I have been a professional artist for the past twenty years, painting in watercolors, acrylic and mixed media. I worked to develop my own authentic style and visual voice. Illustrating is a natural extension of that work but writing is something I only dabbled with from time to time over many years.  It wasn’t until I committed to completing one story and illustrating it, that I realized this is what I was meant to do. It has taken me a while to get here but this is who I am and what I want to do for the rest of my life.
