I am a freelance childrens book illustrator. I also create a line of work titled fArCiCaL fOlK aRt, a humorous version of life as I (and my commissioned clients) know it. ...My pastel people and pet portraits have been a long time favorite. I donate money from my works to local animal rescues, a cause that's near and dear to my heart. I own two horses (one is a rescue), three pomeranians (two are rescues) and a gold fish we saved from a frozen pond in our front yard.
