I was born in Germany, and went from there to the Netherlands, Washington DC, Maryland, New York City, Los Angeles, and finally settled in Ireland. Our kids have moved out several years ago, and spread themselves all over the world. I live in the Irish countryside with my husband and a few cats, where I grow fruit, veggies, flowers, a hedgerow, roses and lots of trees. My favorite thing to do all day is draw. When I'm not drawing, I like to roam the garden or watch the swallows flitting about. I used to be a classical animator, working for various companies, including 8 Don Bluth films. Now I write and illustrate children's books, which you can find on Amazon. You can see more of my work on my Art Blog.
