I was born and raised in sunny Florida. I think I always enjoyed drawing and was fortunate to have a creative mother and enthusiastic art teachers in high school. I continued my education at the Maryland Institute College of Art where I studied painting, printmaking and sculpture.
Although I have been illustrating children's books for twenty years, I recently took time off to explore writing my own stories. I also wanted to step away from my traditional watercolor illustrations and play with new mediums and techniques. You can see what I have been up to at FruitfulPlay.com
