I was born in Southern California, so grew up believing in dreams and magic (thanks to Hollywood and Disneyland.) While I occasionally feel duped, I still have a core fascination with all things fairy land-ish that will never leave me! I have a degree in Graphic Design from Chico State University. My art career has gone on tangents here and there, but always returns when called. I am a published author/illustrator in the field of children's books.
