My first word was "bird".
Really. I began identifying birds post college and started drawing a photographing
birds in earnest around 1999. In 2013, I decided to make a career of it.
Since then I've had my illustrations published in "Birding"
magazine and was awarded the 2015 Don and Virginia Eckelberry Fellowship
from ANSP. I converted my husband into a birder and we just spent our
honeymoon in Costa Rica. In 2016 I will begin illustrating a children's
book by Rob Bierregaard, currently titled "Belle's Journey"
The story follows the first migration of an Osprey Rob tagged in Martha's
Vineyard, named Belle. The book is to be released in early 2018, via Charlesbridge.
