Daniel's Dog, written by Jo Ellen Bogart was my first 32-page picture book. Since 1990, I've illustrated over fifty more books, including early readers.
My first non-fiction book was In Flanders Fields, written by Linda Granfield. Although I love illustrating fiction, my representational style combined with my interest in history, was a perfect fit.
During a presentation at the McCrae House, I was asked, "We teach children about war. Why don't we teach them about Peace?" That simple question led me to write One Peace: True stories of Young Activists.
Since then, I've been honoured to write more books about amazing kids, including two creative non-fiction novels about Shannen Koostachin and Severn Cullis-Suzuki.
