"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.
My artwork is also featured on other products.
I love presenting programs at schools, libraries and conferences
about how I create my books.
• My paintings are currently featured in Strathmore Mansion's
in North Bethesda, MD from June 11 to July 31.
• Spectacular Spots will soon be published in a bilingual
English/Spanish format - a companion to my bilingual Stripes of All Types.
• I just completed the artwork for my next book, Fantastic Flowers.
I'm so excited about this one! Pub date: March 2017.
