My left brain says...
I create art with words and pictures to help children develop a joy of reading. I infuse humor, characters of color and cultural themes to reflect the real world in which we live.
My right brain says...
I like to create stuff using messy mediums and to experiment with new techniques.
OK, what else?
For the last 25+ years, I've been an educator of literacy, elementary, bilingual, ESL, Spanish, and Art classes.
For over 10+ years, I worked as a freelance editor, writer and illustrator for educational and book publishers.
I'm also a certified educational administrator.
I've earned six college degrees, including an MFA in Illustration from Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
I'm a sports and Star Wars fanatic.
Don't put a chocolate chip cookie or roll of Sweettarts in front of me or I will devour them.
