10 Years of Pieces and Parts - The Book

A world where creativity, uniqueness, and YOU belong. It's a colorful, crazy place where everything is possible. So, dream big, and find what you're looking for just around the corner.




Happy anniversary!



10 years ago I published my book, pieces and parts. It was created for everyone and dedicated as a gift to my 2 children.


After working in media, then becoming a mom and helping out with the school's story time.

I realized few, to no, characters looked like my children. Especially representing the fun, creative, artsy kids with the message that every person is made up of lots of funny and crazy pieces and parts creating you, A Masterpiece.


Since then, each year I give a copy of the book to my graduating video students. One student told me that whenever she feels down she'll read Pieces and Parts to cheer herself up. And the little kids love the silly elements and draw themselves into the funny scenes.


I published and illustrated the book myself, as 10 years ago publishing companies were not

not widely interested in inclusive and positive books like mine.


But today, I’ll say, I’m very proud of the work.


The illustrations have lots of little easter eggs, like the upside down street light from my hometown, my chocolate lab Bella who was the best dog ever, and there is an homage to the city of Winter Park.


This was a labor of love, I learned so much throughout the process, most importantly, when you believe in something, don't let the NOs stop you.


Thank you for celebrating creativity, determination and love with me.


Pieces and Parts, You are A Masterpiece.
