I have drawn pictures for as long as I can remember. My favorite possessions (besides books) were crayons, pencils, and felt pens and I even won first prize in a coloring contest when I was in the second grade. I still draw but now I usually work with oil pastels on black paper.
Animals are my main subject matter. Whether I am writing and illustrating children's books, creating designs for products or working on fine art, animals always seem to pop up.
I live and work in Portland, Oregon and spend time with my husband, son and of course, animals - our weiner dogs Dutch and Maggie.
