Becoming an illustrator is a huge part of "what I want to be when I grow up". If I could use my art to help tell stories and to create in depth characters that assist in taking the reader to another world, I am happy. Though this was always a part of my dream, I never allowed myself to follow it because that would mean dropping a lot of the plates I was spinning. It took two chronic illnesses and having a baby to make me reevaluate what I really wanted to see in my life. Once I did, I found there was space for illustration and that my introverted ways craved the quiet sketching and painting inside my home studio while drinking tea and listening to music. I hope to grow this work and am very excited about the children's books that are on the way to being published.
