This is one of the birds who comes to me in my walks, inspiring my fantasies. I'm always astounded by the brilliant, burning vermillion of its wings, its boldness, and its fierceness.
My lifetime of work includes more than 3 decades as an illustrator and painter, several years of painting pottery and framing pictures, a stint as a cartoonist for my college newspaper, and about 4 decades as a maker of stories, from the first moment I realized I could put pictures and words together, until now.
I love the way light touches everything, walking under trees, flowers, fall, music, drawing and coloring, writing, Halloween and Christmas, martial arts, yoga, children, animals, magic, and stories.
My favorite tales include (in no particular order):
