I’ve been inventing new art materials for children for over 25 years. Several years ago I even invented crayons that could bounce (alas, not everyone thought this was a great invention, and they were never sold).
Here I am hard at work a while ago:
I love to illustrate, write, create for children, and teach. I enjoy sparking kids of all ages (0 to 85+) to move from their center with balance, flexibility, strength, and ease. I hope to create smiles and encourage positive imagination, playful creativity and well-being through stories worth retelling.
Yoga and art are about listening within and moving from the heart. Practicing and teaching yoga nourishes my creative spirit and inspires my illustrating and writing.
Here's a selfie of me when I'm not working or creating.

My work is my play. I’ve spent my career as a product development chemist, and may someday share my secret formula for creativity.
I also love spending time with children, the beach, nature, playing the sax, and getting upside down daily.
