The more I continue to work on my illustrations, the more exciting I feel when I complete a new piece.  I have always had an interest in children's literature as I was an elementary art teacher for several years before retirement.  There is so much innovation in this area, it is refreshing to visit the children's section at a bookstore weekly.  

I am still using my traditional art skills but I keep trying to incorporate more and more digital in my work.  I am so comfortable with pencils and watercolor but I so admire my fellow illustrator friends that work solely with digital skills.
