I grew up as an only child in Atlanta, Georgia. I was interested in everything from reading to singing to dancing to violin to flute to piano! Drawing was the hobby I enjoyed the most. I loved drawing from an early age so much that I continued to get better and better until I was able to become a picture-book artist.

I usually paint with watercolor and gouache, but sometimes I use ballpoint pen, charcoal, and even wax crayons to make my pictures! The more different ways I find to make pictures, the more fun my job becomes. Sometimes I do a painting four or five times before I get it right, but the redos are worth it when I finish a painting that makes me smile from ear to ear.

Three Things You Might Not Know About Me:

1. I broke my right arm twice!I

2. love playing outdoors.

3. My favorite color paint is Prussian Blue.
