About Me

My photo
A little about my artwork: I interpret the words written on a page by telling the story behind the story working with pen and ink, watercolor and Photoshop, I fuse old techniques with modern ones to create a world that every drawing can speak to a child or grownups.

Out of print & new on Kindle

front & back cover
Today as I looked over a few things on Amazon I read this
 "Out of Print".
Not what you want to read but it is part of the business;
I remember when I was looking over the text I was getting confused to who was who. I sent an email to the publisher saying that I think the characters are mixed up in the book. 
I was told that the giraffe had stripes and his friend the zebra had sploshes. 
 My response to that was "Oh Funny!"
& then I wrote  so is the Giraffe black & white?  
A: Yes
Me: Ok 
(this was the third book I illustrated; I did not think I had a real say on certain things like what color they should be, my thought was let them stay there true colors so kids will not be confused. I started to speak up and make suggestions more so after this book was done)        
It was a cute picture book idea


Lollipop is different, and his friend Sprinkles is different, too. Lollipop is a giraffe with stripes. Sprinkles is a zebra with sploshes. Lollipop wonders if his "normal" family would love him no matter what.

Also Just noticed
"The Art of Science" 
as of May of 2013 is now on Kindle,
my name no longer graces the cover the chapter artwork has been removed.
  But that cover is still my artwork
(I wonder how that works out in royalties)


  1. Cute illustrations, that's the first time I've ever seen those switched!
