These simple line drawings and watercolor images have developed over the years from my experience in 1973 living in England and later in life in the marine salvage world of the NY Harbor.
Writing and illustrating three books in my children's book series has been very rewarding. For the first two books in my series, "Elephoot" and "Elephoot Returns," I found a printer and the books were set up and printed to my specifications. The third book, "Penelope The Tea Mouse," is Distributed by Ingram. Any bookseller can order the book through this entity or from Amazon. I have enjoyed going to schools to read my books and also talk about how my books came about. Many children have been reading the Elephoot books. The age group is anywhere from age 1 to 101. The colors are attractive for small children to just look at the pictures. Older children love the stories and the fun fact pages at the end of the books. Right now I am working on the fourth picture book in the series.

Having an imagination is key to developing art for children. I have found that my simple line drawings and water colors delight young children as well as adults and grandparents. It has been fun for me too!
