About meI am mommy to two girls some fishes and a cat. When I'm not taking care of them (or drawing), I squeeze in time to read and hunt for more books to read. I had a great dilemma in college whether to be an English lit major or art, and chose art. That path took me to San Francisco for five years, but my art studies got sidetracked by motherhood. Now my focus is teaching my daughters to love reading and books. So far they've inherited about 100 of my old children's books, and keep gathering more! These are their books.

About my libraryI have always collected books. I search for them at library discard sales, thrift stores, used book stores and occasionally garage sales. I try only to buy books I have read and know I love, otherwise the piles of books and money spent on them would go through the roof! I usually only keep books I know I will want to read again and again. My dream for my library someday is to have sturdy, aesthetically pleasing bookshelves, in a room just for books. With a comfy chair by the window.

Many of my books are missing dust jackets. So occasionally I make my own, usually from collages of photographs clipped out of magazines. These books are tagged "Own Design".
