Stories are for everyone
Storytelling helps create standing places. Spaces where we can explore who we are, where we come from and what it is we believe to be true or untrue. We get to explore the fantastic, the mundane, the whatever it is we want! I have gathered some of my words, prose and poems into various stages. Some I will share on my blog, some I will print, some I will create into downloads or ebooks.
The Rascally Stars is a picture book for 0-5 year old. Now available as a downloadable pdf in my shop.
Make a Splash
Make a Splash has been born from my need to respond to youth suicide. One of my daughters had two serious suicide attempts, I responded to this painful experience with my art.
Make a Splash is a hands on art journal for young people. A place to stick stuff, write, paint and print. Each chapter has a creative focus on everyday issues: relationships, self-talk, bullying and cultivating the real you.
This art journal has been edited and currently I am working on the design to publish soon.

Finding Grandpa’s Song is an educational picture book for children about dementia that I illustrated. Grace Wyatt and I worked on the words for Music Moves Me Trust. Finding Grandpa’s Song is at print stage and will be published soon.
