I joined SCBWI (The Society of Children’s Book Illustrators and Writers) and continued to learn about writing and illustrating picture books. When it was time for me to once again join the work force, my husband informed me I had enough credits to teach art! My love of teaching AND art came full circle.
I have been teaching art to elementary students for several years and I love it. I also continue to write and illustrate. Hard work pays off and my first picture book comes out Fall of 2018! It is called Crunchy, Not Sweet and stars a little tree frog dude hopping around experiencing new foods only to realize he likes food that is crunchy, but not sweet. I can’t wait to read it to my students!
Other than art and picture books, I enjoy hanging out with my husband and three boys. I also like reading, cooking, decorating, biking and adventures of all types!
