Tell us a bit about yourself
I’m an illustrator, designer, printer, wife and mother (and not necessarily in that order on any given day). I grew up in Colorado, moved to Lawrence, Kansas to attend KU, and stayed. I have a wonderful husband, a darling daughter, and a kitty cat. Oh, and some fish.

What’s your passion? What makes you tick?
I just love to MAKE STUFF. Drawing, painting, printing, cutting, sewing, knitting, cooking, anything!

What’s your wildest dream for Project OpenBook?
An amazing collaboration of words and art that can truly help a child in need.
