What I am up to today
I currently live in Alameda, Saskatchewan. I am married, have two married children and 5 awesome grandchildren. I feel incredibly blessed to have the endless support of my husband Glenn, and my family. Over the years, I have had many different jobs, and I always drew pictures on scraps paper at every break, at every job. I worked as a librarian for our local library and later I as a librarian within the school system. I loved my interactions with children and books. These experiences lead me to working as a freelance illustrator.
Today I work full time at Swallow’s Art Nest Studio as an artist/illustrator. I began working in oils and dabbling in numerous other art mediums, I now work mainly in acrylics, pen and ink and prismacolor pencils. I create opportunities to fill my life with children and share in the excitement of imagination and creating! I create children picture book illustrations, book and magazine covers, paint nature and teach art classes. I am continually inspired by nature and love adding humor to my illustrations. If you'd like a peek at my studio and inspirational environment, please check out this recent interview in the CANSCAIP Newsletter.
Working as an artist/illustrator, I look forward to every opportunity to create picture books and share my creativity with others. It is my sincere hope that my work takes you into your world of imagination.
