My first School Visit was to an Elementary School in Topeka, Kansas in 1986. I was twenty nine years old and not used to speaking to large groups. I was quite nervous, wondering what ideas to share, what words to say, and thinking, ‘What have I gotten myself into this time?’ That day arrived and, during a break, a sign hanging near the sink in the teachers’ lounge caught my attention. It was a hand washing reminder, stating: ‘YOUR HANDS TOUCH MANY LIVES’. That phrase stuck in my mind. For me, the words on that sign meant something more that day. Since then, I have visited schools and libraries to share my artwork with thousands of children through humor, creativity and the magic that illustration brings to a story.
My hands do indeed touch many lives . . . through the pages of a children’s book!
