to my site.
In the beginning I studied art and illustration at the University of Houston, Texas, and the Art Center School of Design in Pasadena, California. For over 20 years now I have been a professional Illustrator. My work is done in watercolor, gouache and colored pencils.
My experience includes illustrations for advertising and editorial projects, greeting cards, textbooks, trade picture books, as well as art for the “Barney & Friends” TV show. I have illustrated 13 picture books for children, including “Harriett the Homeless Raccoon”, of which I am both author and illustrator.
“Sometimes It’s Grandmas and Grandpas - Not Mommies and Daddies”, published by Abbeville Press, will be in bookstores September ’09. Written by Gayle Burn and illustrated by myself, this picture book tells of a child who is being raised by her grandparents and explores the joys and questions a child in that situation might experience.
My husband, Pat Haverfield, and I live in Dallas, Texas. He is a talented advertising photographer and director. Our only son is all grown up and lives in Southern California.
You can see more of my work in Picturebook ’07 and ’08.
