Rarely seen without a pencil in hand, Katherine loves to create stories and illustrations that stretch the imagination.
Katherine's goal is to create whimsical, engaging stories that encourage inventive thinking and problem solving. She especially likes the picture book genre, where each turn of the page brings new surprises. Her stories can be used in a variety of ways to enhance classroom curriculum.
A former elementary teacher, Katherine has a B.A. in Education and M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction. She is a member of SCBWI.

She is currently working on a creature-themed activity book for beginning readers.
When she's not working in the studio, Katherine is taking yoga classes, devouring books, or walking outdoors with her family and dogs. As new residents of Columbus, she and her husband have been discovering all the interesting places to explore!
