Celebrating 25 Years In Print
3 Pandas Planting

Originally published in 1994, by Bradbury Press, my 32 page picture-book for the littlest of readers shares information and tips about recycling and doing good things for the environment. Very young children learn to count and do their part in taking care of the earth from crocodiles who carpool, tigers who turn off faucets, leopards learning about recycling plastics, and pandas planting trees.

I am incredibly honored to be working with these amazing, talented women! We have formed Women Creating CommUNITY Lansdowne!


We celebrate the fresh, powerful, and diverse voices in our community.

We highlight the work by a wide and multigenerational range of talents: the well-established professional, people at the beginning of their careers, young imaginative voices, creative women who don’t label themselves as artists, experienced crafters who create in the privacy of their homes, and more.
