So what do I do with all that creative time? Well, on this website you’ll discover that I’ve written and illustrated five books, I’m a fine arts painter, I write and illustrate magazine travel articles, teach workshops on illustrated travel journaling, and lecture on the life of an artist/author.
I am very fortunate to have had three things in my life: artistic genes from my father’s family, supportive parents who had the vision to start my art schooling at an early age, and a husband, Paul, who shoulders all the domestic duties so that I can have maximum creative time.
