Author, Illustrator, Educator

It’s been a three year journey to write, If You Listen to the Trees. After spending so many hours walking through the woods I am honored to share the spirit of the forest with my readers. I have been painting since I was given a set of watercolors for my birthday as a very young child. When painting the colors, the magic, the expression of love for the natural world all come together.

My father was a great storyteller and I too  have made up bedtime stories for my three children for many years. If You Listen to the Trees and my first book, The Paintbrush Dreamer invite all to pause and reflect on all the beauty that surrounds us. Open the pages and read slowly, enter the quietest place in your heart and enjoy. Next time you take a walk through the woods keep your ears open, the trees have more stories to share.
