About MeI am an illustrator and author who was once a full-time animator. The process of bringing characters to life and telling stories from a visual point of view + read more has been of interest to me since I was very young. I am an Emily Carr graduate with a degree in fine arts/animation. In addition to illustrating, writing and animating, I have also done quite a bit of post-secondary teaching and I currently mentor at Vancouver Film School. My two kids, my husband and I live in an old house in Vancouver. I love picture books, graphic novels and listening to audio books on family road trips. Show Less
