About

Me, on the left, with author Karen J Moore

I am a California girl, born and raised. 

As a child, I was the one that thought up all the pretend games for my sister and friends. I drew my first mural at age 3, which was a four foot drawing of my stuffed dragon, rendered in Crayola crayons.  I wrote and illustrated my first book at age 9, and I still have it.  It was typed on an old typewriter.  The illustrations were done in ballpoint pen and dime store watercolors.

I love to work with gouache, watercolor, ink, colored pencils, and acrylic paint.  My studio has 2 huge vintage drafting tables, and an easel, and I still don't have enough drawing space, but I make do! There are 3 bookcases in my studio and 2 or 3 bookcases in every room in the house.

 

I live with my husband, my horses, cows, and cats among the farms and dairies in the heartland of California. Our 4 children are grown and we have two grandsons.
