NEWS & EVENTS
I will be a vendor at the Wings Over Water Pacific Northwest Birding Festival on March 16 in Blaine at the Community Pavilion 800 H Street from 10 am to 5 pm. I'm bringing digital paintings of Eagle, Nuthatch, and Pileated Woodpecker and notecards, books, activity books, magnets, and party games. This is such a wonderful educational opportunity to learn about local birds.
My watercolor paintings of Dragonfly and Trumpet fish are currently displayed at Cordata Cooperative along with other works by Whatcom Art Guild Members in the cafe. My digital painting of Grizzly Bear Dreams is currently on display at Allied Arts on Cornwall
My newest project has been a series of silly story party games. Each game includes instructions, a silly story with blank portions numbered to be filled in by guests, and lists of items for ten party guests to fill in, that will eventually be part of the story.. thus making it pretty darn silly. So far I have completed party games for Halloween "Spooky Silly Story", Christmas "Christmas Elf and the Magic Button", Winter "Snowy Silly Story", and Birthday "Superhero Silly Story". Coming soon will be a Silly Story for bridal showers. These are available to purchase at Whatcom Art Market. They can also be ordered directly from me as per my contact page.
These stores carry my books year round: Whatcom Art Market, Village Books, Hamann's Gallery and Gifts, Allied Arts of Whatcom County, Lightcatcher Art Museum Gift Shop in downtown Bellingham, Northwest Art Museum Store in LaConner, Bad Rock Books in Columbia Falls, MT, Lone Pine State Park and Flathead State Parks Visitors Centers in Montana, and The Apple Barrel in Kalispell

Montana Cats is available at The Apple Barrel in Kalispell. This fruit stand sits near Glacier Park International Airport and a favorite for us to go to for peaches later in the summer and pumpkins in the fall and homemade fruit pies all day.

New! Family fun activity books for road trips. My series, Car Detectives, gives families and children ages 10+ a break from screen time and a reason to look out the window on car trips. The whole family can participate in searching for the assigned objects. Each book has a different theme: Trucks, Signs, Animals, Colors, Cultures, Fences, People, Recreation, Imagination, Stores, and Gardens. Once the investigations are complete, the reader has a nice certificate of achievement for expertise in that field of study. The eleven books can be special ordered from me by email. I just finished adding a page just for them on this website.. Click on Car Detectives to find descriptions and how to order. They are also available at Whatcom Art Market and Bad Rock Books, Columbia Falls, MT. as well as visitor centers at Flathead Lake State Park and Lone Pine State Park.

In my "spare time", I thought it would be great to brush up on my junior high Spanish. This resulted in a translation of Midnight and Moonlight in Spanish, with a lot of help from Google Translator and my friends: Susana Alfonso, Mary Michaelson and Spanish professor at Western Washington University, Sean Dwyer. Dos Amigos, Una historia de la amistad was read at Bellingham Village Books at the first ever Spanish Open Mike on January 27, 2020. It is available online and by order though your favorite book store and at Whatcom Art Market and Allied Arts. Buy both English and Spanish versions to brush up on your Spanish!
