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 love traveling to new places and spending time at my cabin on a lake. I also enjoy renovating my 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!
