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.

​Here's a selfie of me when I'm not working or creating.

In my career as a product development chemist, 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). Someday maybe I'll share my secret formula for creativity. 

Here's an oldie of me working hard:

Yoga and art are about unity and moving from the heart. Practicing and teaching yoga nourish my creative spirit and inspire my illustrating and writing.

I also love spending time with children, the beach, nature, playing the sax, and getting upside down daily.
