About the Art

In 2021, I illustrated The Wild and Sacred Feminine Deck: A 52-Card Oracle with Shambhala Publications (October 18, 2022) and am presently illustrating my picture book, Like You, Like Me, with Christy Ottaviano Books/Little, Brown. My previous children’s picture books include Papa Brings Me the World; Luna and Me: The True Story of a Girl Who Lived in a Tree to Save a Forest; Same, Same but Different, recipient of the 2013 Ezra Jack Keats Award; and My Travelin’ Eye (all published by Christy Ottaviano Books/Henry Holt).

I live and paint on our family homestead while tending our gardens and animals, and playing in beauty.


I am a mixed-media artist and mother, and an author and illustrator, inspired by plants and animals, the present moment, my children, and Spirit.

I simply go for a hike and see a lovely flower that the light hits just so, and that inspires a new piece of jewelry.
Through dream work I have learned to delve into the realm of the unconscious and freely and unselfconsciously play with the images and words from my dreams
