I woke up thinking that today would be my grandmother's 107th birthday. She lived to be 100, and I'm so glad she got to read the children's book that I wrote about her and the Block Island bird lady, Miss Dickens.
I am an art teacher who loves to draw and paint, as well as illustrate for children. I also enjoy printmaking---especially block prints. Whatever I do as an artist, I have to remind myself---no pressure---it all starts by just putting pencil to paper.
