I draw and write for children (that includes the kid in anyone). I’m a member of the Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), San Diego chapter. In 2020, I won San Diego SCBWI’s Diversity Award for Best Emerging Artist. I work in different media, including watercolor, gouache, colored pencils, and digital.
In my spare time I teach about children and media in consumer society at the University of California, San Diego, where I earned my PhD in Communication. My original hometown is Vancouver, Canada. I’m also what they call an accomplished classical pianist. So naturally I’ve yearned to master jazz. Luckily, my cats don’t complain when I try to improv.
