CHILDREN’S ILLUSTRATION

I live in Tahoe immersed in nature which fills my days with wonder, joy, and new discoveries. As a kid, non-fiction was what I loved reading most and for over 30 years, it’s what I have illustrated the most—not only for books but also for educational exhibits. I couldn’t imagine a better purpose for my art than to make nature inspiring and accessible for kids of all ages:
