The books that influenced me…

When I was a kid, I belonged to a book club. Every month, I’d get a new book delivered right to my house. It was awesome! I loved books so much that I really looked forward to that delivery.

Below are a few from that club.

This is one of my all time favorite books! Miss Twiggly is so wonderfully quirky and as a tree lover myself, how could I not love her!

I got my first Little House book from my aunt for Christmas when I was seven.It has been the biggest influence in my career. I love Garth Williams and his Little House illustrations. Even as a kid I’d get lost in the pictures in these books. I just love the soft pencil shading.
