"If the paintings are the feast, Stockdale’s words are the dessert.”
The Washington Post

Welcome! I write and illustrate picture books that celebrate nature.
This brief video and print interview describe how I create them.

My artwork is also featured on other products.

I love presenting programs at schools, libraries and conferences about how I create my books.

Here's What’s New...

I'm currently painting the illustrations for my next book, Fantastic Flowers, a very joyous process!                  The book will be out in 2017, as announced in the Publishers Weekly's Rights Report.

I'm excited to have joined iNK THINK TANK, a group of award-winning authors of nonfiction for children.
