WORKSHOPS for ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS & ADULTS

When I was a young girl my world vision was shaped in part by looking at picture books. They aided my reading skills by visually identifying objects first before I knew how to read their names. With that memory in mind, my approach to illustrating and teaching about picture books is the art must convey an author's story in a way that is clear and detailed. My goal is to broaden a child's vision and help them learn to read.
