Welcome! I write and illustrate picture books that celebrate nature.
My artwork is also featured on other products.
I love presenting programs at schools, libraries and conferences
about how I create my books.
What’s coming up...
• I'll be presenting and signing books at the Baltimore Book Festival
on Saturday, September 24 at 1 PM. Please join me!
• My next picture book, Fantastic Flowers, and a bilingual English/Spanish
version of Spectacular Spots will be published on March 1, 2017.
