I have been fortunate to have had a career as a children's book illustrator with over 20 books to my credit (done mostly under Vickie M. Learner), including the award winning "One Hundred Million Reasons for Owning an Elephant." I also have a day job as a para- educator for special ed kids, who bring me lots of joy. I hope my work will inspire a new generation of little artists. Thank you for supporting a small time crafter and artist.
