Welcome to my website!
I’m an author, illustrator, and teacher from Gustavus, Alaska. In my books and art, I celebrate the beauty, complexity, and dignity of living things. In my classes, I help children and adults strengthen their observational and artistic skills as they connect with the living landscape through art.
