I am a children's book illustrator, surface designer, and visual arts teacher. I create my illustrations using a mix of traditional and digital media. I've illustrated several trade pictures books. I've taught visual arts for the past 11 years to children and adults. I try and keep this quote by Picasso in mind when illustrating or teaching art.
"Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up."
- Pablo Picasso
