Hello, and thank you for viewing my Etsy store. I'm glad you came by for a look!

I'm an artist living in the beautiful Sonoran Desert in Tucson, Arizona with a wonderful
husband and several adorable kitty-kids, not to mention lots of creative clutter.

It's a great pleasure in my life to create art that is humorous, fun and whimsical. I love and collect illustrated children's books, antique and contemporary. The wonderful artists who create them inspire me, and so do my cats, all animals, Halloween, beauty, nature, and oh, just about everything!

When I'm not drawing, painting, illustrating the children's books, working in clay or creating jewelry, I like to travel and explore. Disneyland is a favorite destination! But one of my favorite things is to head out and explore ghost towns here…

When I'm not drawing, painting, illustrating the children's books, working in clay or creating jewelry, I like to travel and explore. Disneyland is a favorite destination! But one of my favorite things is to head out and explore ghost towns here in the southwest. I've spent a few interesting nights at some haunted hotels!

I think a sense of fun and adventure nurtures the creative spirit. And I hope you will have as much fun viewing my items as I had making them for you!

Thanks again for looking!
