She loves to sketch on graph paper, ink with micron pens, and paint with watercolor on hot pressed paper.  While she hasn’t any formal training in art, she hopes that her fondness for nature, animals, and humor shines through in her work.  She greatly admires and has been influenced by Richard Scarry, Beatrix Potter, James Marshall, Marjorie Flack, Arnold Lobel, Mini Grey, Fred Gwynne, and Quentin Blake.

Cedric and the Dragon is her very first picture book, and she is currently illustrating a series of piano music books for children.
