I’ve had a few opportunities in my past to illustrate.  Long ago, because of ptsd, I lived on a mountain side, hiding away from the world.  I did have some help, counselors, and Voc Rehab of Idaho.  I was invited to a women’s art therapy circle, and it was there I was recognized.  My counselor paid for many materials for me, and another Idaho agency that helped the disabled women in VR publish children’s books.  Had I known then, what I know now, things would have come out different, but it’s all a learning process.

So here are some images from the books I was asked to illustrate.

My daughter in law, A.J,writes children’s picture books and I’m hoping to work with her, but I need a lot of practice yet.  I am in the process of arranging a disciplinary course to practice.  My life has been very serious in nature, and so I’m hoping to lighten up, loosen up, and have some fun with animation and illustration.  I like the fact I have the freedom to anthropomorphize the character of animals and other creatures.
