Author and Illustrator of children's books

Hi, I'm Paula. 


I like to write and illustrate children's books (nonfiction is one of my favorites). I illustrate for other genres too.


I grew up on the beautiful Flathead Indian Reservation. Childhood dyslexia made learning to read difficult. Fortunately, it later resolved into a love of reading–my spouse and I reveled in reading to our children at bedtime. I was a graphic artist before becoming a mother, a substitute teacher before teaching as an artist in residence at local schools. For a while, I baked muffins and cookies as a professional baker! Finally, I gave myself permission to follow my dream of illustrating and writing children's books.


I hope you enjoy my website. You can follow me on Instagram where I post mostly about nature, Indigenous literature, and picture books. I'm on Twitter, for now, but not regularly. Please go to my "Contact" page if you'd like to reach me. Thanks for visiting!
