WELCOME!

Sally and the Purple Socks
As an author and illustrator of children's books, as well as animator, I love to create characters in every way--through writing, drawing, animating, and voice over acting. Many of my characters were inspired by pets with big personalities. Others come from Odd Juxtapositions, place not far from here.
