|Me wearing my prom dress from 1992. Sexy as all get out.|
I am a writer, illustrator and child wrangler. As I type this, my son just chewed a hole in my sweater. Some things have to suffer for art. Including my clothing.
I used to be an avid blogger back in the day. But then life got busy with children and art. When you have to choose between blogging and showering, your loved ones appreciate if you choose the latter. I promise I will drink more coffee and try harder, though.
