About me

Gender Female
Industry Arts
Occupation Artist/Writer/Teacher/Publisher
Location KC area, Missouri, United States
Introduction I think I was born with a crayon in my hand. My baby book has drawings done when I was two...you can almost tell what they are! (The hammer and the urge to build came later--I was 5 when I built my first wood and nails project.)
I've kept an artist's journal for decades, recording, celebrating, observing, learning, and sometimes coping with everyday life!
I've been a working artist for 35 years and more, and have written and illustrated 36 books. These include 9 for North Light Books and two art books for The Sierra Club. Both companies are now out of business, but my books are available from Viking Penguin and Echol Point Books.
I make art almost every day--because I have to. It's me.
