Bugs Don't Bug Her

 For our latest MB Artists Catalog, the theme was "Quirks and Encounters."  Nothing is more quirky than my 6 year old daughter and her obsession with bugs, particularly cicadas.  She collected over 200 exoskeletons last year, wrote a song about cicadas for the piano, and brought a dead cicada with accompanying exoskeleton into her class for show and tell (She named him "Ribbit."). She plays with crickets, holds praying mantises and wants a tarantula at her next birthday party.  I hope this quirky little girl is always unabashedly and bravely herself!

Sea Turtles and Outer Space

I loved working on this art for Scholastic.  It accompanies a story about a young girl who is passionate about saving sea turtles, but who feels that she can't live up to the amazing things that her scientist/astronaut mother has done. It is an empowering story about following your passions and encourages girls to see themselves in careers in STEM.  I am so happy to have been able to illustrate this story and contribute to this positive message!
