Once upon a time, there was a little girl from Ohio who drew on sidewalks and dreamt of becoming a REAL artist someday. And she did!

After lots of doodling (and erasing), some schooling, and a cool gig as a staff artist at American Greetings, that little girl (ME!) took a big leap to follow her dream of making children's books full-time.

Today, my art can be found on everything from greeting cards, baby gifts, stickers, board games, fabric, wallpaper and books, of course! Since making my publishing debut in 2007, I have illustrated and/or authored over fifteen books, earning recognition from groups including the Society of Illustrators, the New York Times Book Review, Scholastic Parent & Child Magazine, and Parents' Choice.  I still live in Ohio with my book-loving family, where I draw on sidewalks and encourage kids (and even grown-ups) to tell their stories and chase their dreams.
