About

grass WP about
I am an author/illustrator and an architect based in the San Diego area. I have created this website to showcase my illustration work, primarily created for the book dummies I have been developing. My humorous stories have been described as off-beat or quirky, which makes sense as I am, well, off-beat and quirky. I work mostly in Prismacolor colored pencil but occasionally dive into acrylic paint, marker, watercolor, pen and ink, and let’s not forget my trusty pencil.

I am a member of The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and active in my local chapter. I have received a Certificate in Children’s Book Illustration from UCSD extension and am in the final class to receive a similar certificate for Children’s Book Writing.  One of my projects won the Bookloft Scholarship for the best Children’s Book at the Mendocino Coast Writer’s Conference. I have attended numerous classes, conferences and workshops to hone my picture book writing and drawing skills, most recently the Super Children’s Book Bootcamp at the Highlights campus in Pennsylvania.
