Activities: Raising ducklings, building stone walls, scouring flea markets, visiting writers’ houses…
Distraction: I am very lucky to share a studio in Brooklyn with three other picture book makers, Brian Floca, Rowboat Watkins and Douglas Salati. When I’m not there I’m in the Catskill Mountains where I’m building a retreat for children’s book people in an old dairy farm, called Milkwood.
