Illustrating & storytelling:

As a child, Elizabeth loved making stories into little books with few words, many pictures and the occasional map, just like now.


Elizabeth currently lives in the Pacific Northwest and works both as an illustrator for children and a pediatric nurse practitioner. Her illustrations are done mainly in watercolor, gouache, and ink.
