Welcome to my world of soft colors and serene landscapes that capture the beauty of nature.

I am an award-winning author & illustrator of children’s books that are beautifully illustrated in soft watercolors that

reflect my love and appreciation of Beatrix Potter. Each inspirational story is subtly woven around a positive and encouraging message instilling hope, gratitude and wholesome values into the minds and hearts of little ones. My desire is not only to provide the child with an entertaining story, but to offer the idea of how they, too, can feel connected to the magical and beautiful universe around them.
 

I have a passion for all things magical and creative! My artistic ability began at a young age and is still evident today not only in my children’s stories and illustrations, but with my award-winning fine art paintings, photography, and costume designs. My 3d miniature creations consist of things like ballerina dresses with tiny sculptured ballet slippers, party dresses with little matching hats, and a stone fairy house with whimsical furniture made from cinnamon sticks and moss. Just like Tinkerbell... I can take any found item and use it to fix something… or turn it into a treasure!

As far back as I can remember, things of nature would take my breath away; beautiful golden sunsets, early morning mist surrounding bright blue morning glories; puffy white clouds against the perfect shade of blue sky; the deep green shade of the leaves dancing in the trees on a lovely summer afternoon; and delicate pink roses. That is my passion as an artist, to capture moments of time... moments of peace and tranquility that might even stir up a cherished memory or two.  I hope you enjoy them!

My original works of art can be viewed online at EBSQ Self Representing Artists, where I am a Juried Member, and at Fine Art America. I live in Maryland where I also enjoy nature’s creatures, gardening, and my two cats.
