Over the years, she has developed a distinctive style for her pen and ink illustrations of old barns and houses, as well as Colonial Williamsburg architectural portraiture. She currently works in mixed-media from recycled magazines to create 3-D images of stylistic animals and mandalas, using childhood craft processes (bubble-gum chains, paper footballs, and quilling techniques) to create sophisticated paper baskets ‘crocheted’ woven together in a non-traditional way. This is used to her advantage in creating imaginative illustrations of the delightful fairy houses and fairy doors. Her most recent venture in illustration is using an Apple iPad Tablet and an Apple Pencil to draw her newest illustrations.
She is the author of 140+ books on the topics of business, career search practices, mandala books for hypnotherapy and meditation, 50+ coloring books for adults, women and gender studies, quotes for self-improvement (“2,000+” & “3,000+” series), as well as genealogy and family lineage.
