Expertise

I am an award-winning author of books about art for children of all ages. My expertise is in the creative process of art more than the finished product (though I like products too!). I like to help kids explore and discover their own creativity through art ideas. You can also look at samples of my favorite art ideas at my webpage http://www.brightring.com I hope you will write to me if you have questions about art and creativity for your child.
