Though not formally trained, my years of substitute teaching have inspired me to create picture books for kids that celebrate cultural diversity in New York City and around the world.
My university degree in film and professional background as a freelance writer and critic in the visual arts have profoundly shaped my interest in telling stories through images.
Encourage kids to express themselves, and listen closely when they do!
