School Visit

This past week, I got to meet the students of Forest Dale Elementary and speak to them about illustration!  I talked to them about how a book is made, about my illustration process, and about using colors to help an illustration tell a story.
My volunteers helped me create a silly story....with some very silly illustrations!
Thanks, Forest Dale, for such a great day, and for letting me share my passion for art and storytelling with your students!

We Love Fall

Pumpkin patches, apple picking, hay rides, hot chocolate, beautiful weather and beautiful colors!  After a fun weekend at local farms picking apples and berries, and buying home made fudge and ice cream, I felt inspired to paint a fun little piece celebrating one of my favorite seasons!

"Clubhouse Jr." Feature

 Check out the newest issue of "Clubhouse Jr."!  I had so much fun illustrating the magazine's feature story "The Land of Evad".  The imaginative scenes were full of funky colors and reality/imagination blended imagery.  I love the pink trees, blue sand and backyard temple fortress!  Thanks, "Clubhouse Jr."!
