I always wanted to write and illustrate children’s books when I grew up. Growing up just took longer than I expected. So in the meantime, I drew storyboards for ad agencies, carved tile, exhibited my ceramic sculptures and became a mama to two very sweet, sometimes silly, always creative girls who just keep growing and growing themselves. All these experiences influenced my style of drawing and filled my head with stories and pictures that are just too good not to share.

Some of my favorite things are reading aloud to my daughters, a particular shade of red violet lilac and libraries – especially the children’s section (which has the best books and those cozy little chairs that are always exactly the right size, no matter how grown up I become).
