When I was in kindergarten my teacher sent a snarky note to my mom in September, complaining that I’d used up my crayons “already”. My mom simply thought the note was funny and didn’t see any problem.

I became a freelance illustrator, entrepreneur, educator and public speaker. Decades later, I’m still using up my art supplies! My predominantly light-hearted illustrations reflect my jovial nature and suit a broad range of applications. I’m renowned for turning around assignments at high speed to meet tight “we need it yesterday” deadlines. (Ask me about my dictionary story – it’s a corker.)
