Welcome to Banana & Basil. We love help inspire kids to do better for each other and the planet we live on. The kids of the Banana & Basil series love to give back. Always looking to have new adventures and be part of a greater cause.
I went to school for Pediatric Massage Therapy and loved every minute of it; I couldn’t get enough! Little did I know that would help set me up for a career in writing, designing children’s books just a few years later. I took several art & therapeutic education classes, where I learned abstract play and creative writing techniques. After school, when I began working independently, I combined these two techniques and found my own creative voice.
I discovered I had a passion for writing in my time spent with clients. I enjoy creating depth in my work with energetic expressions, color and most importantly….a heart for serving others. My favorite inspiration comes from the beautiful and unusual forms that appear in nature, past and present.
I value creating inspirational and playful content children can grow with.
When I am not creating my next piece of work. I may be found playing in the garden, daydreaming, decorating and traveling to far off places going on adventures of my own!
