About My passion for the ARTS, children and literacy are woven together in over thirty years of experience resulting in a gloriously expanding quilt of joy! For the past 17 years I’ve run my company of consulting on these topics, making visits around the country and around the world to share my insight. I’ve written and recorded over 100 original songs for children. Now I’m turning the songs lyrics into the text in my traditional children’s picture books. As author and illustrator I LUV to see how children respond to my work with their own. Sharing stories of inspiration and motivation with other educators is the cherry on top!
