Thank you for your interest in my books! My work features the handicrafts of artisans from Mexico and Vietnam. The books teach children basic concepts such as letters, numbers, opposites and colors. The illustrations are handmade from wood, ceramics, tin, papier mache etc. It takes about a month to make many of the pieces. I am proud to be able to showcase the work of artists who might otherwise remain anonymous and recognize them for their lifetime achievement.
My work has developed from years of being a classroom teacher. I also worked in humanitarian assistance and am trained as an art historian. I hold a doctorate from Teachers College Columbia University.
