About me

Hello and welcome! I love creating picture books that bring history to life! I also want to create stories with diverse characters. “All children should see themselves in the books they read!”

I live in Brantford, Ontario, Canada. I have taught elementary school for many years and especially enjoy teaching about history and art. I live with my partner Lorne and our Rottweiller puppy named Mabel. We have three grown sons. We enjoy traveling to new places and spending time at our cabin on a lake. I also enjoy renovating our 103 year old house!

I illustrate my picture books using mixed media, such as dyed and cut paper, pencil crayon, paint and tissue paper. I also use computer filters to add texture and details.

I was so excited to visit Highclere Castle
where “Downton Abbey” is filmed!
