My Story

I’ve always loved drawing since I was a child and dreamed of someday illustrating a children’s book. Well, many years have passed and books entered into the digital age. Perhaps I needed all those life experiences to pull from before launching this project! The creative result are illustrations depicting childhood simplicity and conversations about life between a little girl named Deedee and her beloved dog Mr Katsu.

All conversations warrant listening… but sometimes we just don’t hear them in today’s hurried lifestyle. I hope to change that!
