Why did you become a children’s illustrator?
I do a lot of how-to-do-it illustration. When I had the opportunity to do some children’s craft books I jumped at it – an extra little challenge to make sure the illustrations were clear and easy to understand.
What project are you most proud of? What do children learn or understand from it? Why is that important?
I have done over a dozen craft books for Klutz Books. I have enjoyed being a part of this line of books because it’s creative for the kids. So often amajority of their entertainment is being stuck in front of a screen today. I think it’s so important for them to do something that uses their brains, hands and some creativity.
What are you itching to draw or illustrate next?
I have always loved paper airplanes and think that would be a fun challenge. Or maybe a pop-up book of cities.
Tell us about your latest project. Where can it be purchased?
I think the last book I did was of Fussy Yarn Animals. It should be available at any major hobby store or online.
