Description

Many of my books are about nature. As a naturalist AND and illustrator, it is important to me that I accurately portray my subjects. Equally important is that I convey what drew me to those subjects. It is my hope that the child looking at my illustrations becomes enchanted enough to seek them out on his or her own.
