Kitten Kitty Reads a Book

The newest children’s book that I illustrated is just about ready to head to print and should (fingers crossed) be ready for the Sequim Lavender Festival. Here is the cover of this book. It was a lot of fun to do the illustrations in this book.

I have finished the illustration drawings for the newest book by Gene Bradbury. This one will be called “Kitten Kitty Reads a Book” and will be for pretty little kids. The drawings are done and now on to the painting. The book should be out early to mid-summer.

The other book of Gene’s that I illustrated, called “When Cricket’s Snore”, was published last summer. It was a lot of fun to do and so far this one is as well.

Metal Birds are now Ready!

Goofy BirdsThe limited edition outdoor metal goofy birds are now ready. I have 11 available: 6 hot pink, 4 teal and 1 blue. They are priced at $35 each. If you are interested in one of these birds, I will have them at the Port Townsend Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair this Friday and Saturday (Nov 25-26, 2016) and Vern Burton Holiday Fair in Port Angeles Saturday and Sunday (Dec 3-4th, 2016). If you can’t make either of those shows, feel free to contact me via email at

The birds are made of steel and were fabricated by the Peninsula College Welding class. They are hand painted (by me) with an enamel sign paint. Most of the birds stand about 2-3 feet high.
