As a high school student, I fell in love with the idea of illustrating children’s books after reading “Alice in Wonderland” and “Alice Through the Looking Glass.” However I got married, as many girls do, and started a family and so finishing school was put on the back burner.
I have been illustrating for children’s magazines and written several books with my own illustrations. I live in Fresno, California with my dear husband, who creates with video and theatrical productions. I paint watercolor or create something artistic every day. I belong to the Society of Western Artists, San Joaquin Valley Chapter, and serve as the treasurer. I have entered local and regional art shows every year for decades and have received many ribbons and awards for my work. If not painting, you can find me with my nose in a book; love to read children’s books to see what is being written for them. I also teach knitting and crochet, some classes meeting at a local Starbucks.
