The Journey

Born and raised in Detroit, the daughter of an automobile designer, early on I realized I didn't like to draw cars!

But, I loved to draw just about everything else! A five year stint as a cartoonist led to a full time job as a daily illustrator

 at The Detroit News.


My art journey brought me to Belgium where, for two years, I illustrated books for missionary use. While there I met and later married my husband Bill who soon became a foreign correspondent for the Associated Press.

Our combined journeys found us in NYC, Paris, Amsterdam and Vienna, where he covered world events, I illustrated them and we raised our two kids. Also while overseas, I developed

a small art business painting welcome slates with international themes.

Now we are back in the US, where I combine my love of art and my love of all-things-kids. I teach art to teens, hoping to help raise the next generation of artists, and am trying my hand at illustrating children's books.
