I am an alumna of The Colorado Institute of Art in Denver Colorado. From graphic design work to owning two successful companies, my career has always included art and design.
I worked in the page design and art department of the Colorado Springs Gazette Telegraph for over ten years which allowed me to learn the publishing business. My husband and I owned a printing company and, later, a second business, which manufactured and sold photo-frame greeting cards. Both were started from the ground up with the greeting card company having been grown to sales of over two million dollars annually, before being sold to new owners several years ago. The company continues to be a thriving mail-order business after over 20 years. I designed, and we published, hundreds of greeting cards as well as more than twenty extensive, 50+ page, four-color catalogs.
I have written a middle grade comedy novel that is illustrated throughout, as well as numerous picture book manuscripts. I am an active member of SCBWI and am currently the volunteer co-leader of the Connect & Critique held in Colorado Springs. I enjoy illustrator events held through the Rocky Mountain SCBWI. I attend the SCBWI Letters & Lines writing conferences in Golden, Colorado.
My process of design includes watercolor, cut & torn paper and mixed media for picture books and pencil sketches for middle grade.
