About me

Industry Education
Occupation Editing, writing & children's book illustrator/author

Introduction As a mom and now, new grammie (of the cutest grandson on the planet), after 40+ years of painting children's murals and faux finishing, I've shifted my focus to publishing, teaching, writing and illustrating.
