My young years were growing up in Texas. In college I majored in art and met my husband Joel, career Military. I left school and worked in advertising for many years. I was able to illustrate at home freelancing around the country.

After retiring I really wanted to write children’s books so I joined SCBWI. I was soon hired to illustrate my first picture book with Pelican publishing. The author, David Davis was a friend. I loved his poetry; I continued with Pelican to illustrate 5 picture books and I loved every minute of it. I was still writing and illustrating dummy’s of my work but did not get into publishing my own books. I’m crazy in love with young picture books.
