"The tactile nature of my work is very important to me as is the tactile nature of books. The audience can see my hand in the illustrations that I create. Drawing, painting and making things with my hands have become my peace and my solace, my portal to a different world. It is just me and the feel of the pencil or paintbrush in my hand, the texture of the paper, mixing the paint, gliding the brush across the page or pressing the pencil into the paper, watching the watercolors intermingling on the paper, the graphite marks changing from dark to light as I adjust the pressure, are all tactile and sensory experiences that attract me to work in this way. I always feel amazed at myself that I can take a blank piece of paper and create a whole world on it if I want to."
