My start in the world of illustration came when my mother asked me to created simple illustrations for the poems she wrote about her grandchildren. This spiraled into super-charging my computer, buying digital painting software and trying to learn to draw on a tablet while staring at my tiny computer screen. I've been hooked on crafting art for others ever since.
The joyous reactions from a client or child experiencing a story I've illustrated has made this the most fulfilling work I know I will ever do. It has also developed my need for coffee, has lead to my husband asking me to “draw this” and cultivated a very demanding cat.
