Once upon a time I played with little metal cars in my rock-filled driveway. I ate one-armed lobsters with my father while my sisters stuck with hamburgers. I built yarn canopies with friends under backyard trees that took so much longer to unwind by myself. I wore oversize glasses until I looked in the mirror. I could never serve the vollyball in gym class but I could draw dragons that leapt off the page.
After 13 years of wearing too many plaid uniforms I went to art school.
I graduated from Syracuse University, worked as a compositor in animation, and as an art director creating products for the scrapbooking market.
Today I live, work, and raise a family in New Hampshire, where trees are the tallest obstacles to the sea. I still like yarn, and learned to like oversize glasses.
I write and illustrate children's books.
