I travel the world as an author/illustrator of picture books based on original songs that I have written & recorded. I present workshops and staff development on the importance of the Arts to the learning process. I speak primarily to teachers of children PreK thru Grade 2. My author/illustrator school visits and library performances are appropriate for Grades PreK-Grade 6.
I have created 3 picture books based on my songs. My newest book, "Red, White and Blue" has just been received a national INDIE Excellence Award. The book is based on a song I wrote right after 9-11. I blog about my creative process and my invitations to work with children at www.rainbowswithinreach.blogspot.com in an effort to share my passion for children, the Arts and literacy.
