What I’ve been up to lately

This year seems to be flying by, with hardly time to update this website. Over the past few months I’ve been doing a lot of writing, revising a middle-grade manuscript and pushing along some other new projects. I participated in an Open Studio event, attended an SCBWI conference, and did some more cut paper art.

Above is a cut paper design I made last fall, with a few adjustments this spring. It’s one of my larger and more detailed ones, meant to represent the changing of the seasons. It was cut from a single sheet of paper using an x-acto knife, and I painted the background separately with watercolors. The whole thing is about 11 x 14 inches, and below are some close-ups so you can see the detail. Maybe someday I’ll illustrate a book with this style, once I get more practice.

That’s all the news for now, have a great summer!
