By then, she'd learned to draw and paint, and began traveling the world to sketch everything she saw. She eventually returned back home to her native California, and now has two beautiful boys for whom she whistles to everyday. She has illustrated over sixty books, including Freckleface Strawberry and Big Sister, Little Sister.
