A graduate of the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale, I worked as a Graphic Artist back in the day when you actually had to "cut and paste".
I realized my true passion lies in writing and illustrating children’s books and teaching. Since 1995 I’ve been teaching drawing and painting classes to children and adults. I also teach swimming to all ages. It is so rewarding to show someone how to do something and they end up loving it!
I've been a member of SCBWI for many years, also a critique group leader and active member attending many conferences and workshops.
My art is created to bring joy and a sense of play to all viewers. Whether I’m writing a children’s book or illustrating a story, happiness is the key.
When not creating or teaching, I love spending time with my family in sunny Florida.
