AboutCrunchy Intel

I am a writer and artist currently working on Middle Grade fiction, picture books, and book illustration. I am a graduate of Hamline University’s Masters in Writing for Children and Young Adults program.


My public art is installed in Safeco Field, the Seattle Mariners ballpark, a Portland light rail station, schools and civic structures. I am on the Public Art Roster for Washington State and am interested in working on porcelain enamel and other surface design projects, as well as media projects.


I served on the Advisory Committee and as Illustrator Coordinator for The Society of Children’s Book Writers & Illustrators for Western Washington and am still an active member.


I worked for 4Culture, King County’s cultural arts and heritage organization, for nine years, working in public art, communications and education.
