My Books

I have been writing and illustrating my own books since I was a kid. It’s not surprising to me that my own children seem to have the same obsession. My books are usually interactive in nature. Perhaps that’s the facilitator and museum designer in me shining through. I like to think of my book projects as a way of processing more deeply the themes that come up on my own personal journey as a creative person, an art facilitator, and a mother. I hope you enjoy them as much as enjoyed creating them.
