After the separate deaths of my mother and brother at age 19, I began to use art and writing as a healing tool to assist with my own bereavement experience. Since then I have been creating and teaching art as both a skill as well as a means for healing traumatic loss.  Squirrel and Oak: A Story of Hope was born out of this process, a story that took 10 years to write and illustrate!


Squirrel and Oak: A Story of Hope is a story for parents, teachers, or therapists to use to have an honest and real conversation about loss with children. The complex feelings surrounding death are not easy to express, especially if you are a child. Squirrel and Oak is a story that can be read and discussed together, helping with the healing process. The beautiful illustrations and message take the reader on a powerful journey through the darkness of loss, to the light of understanding and hope.
Using the seasons and symbols of nature, the reader is reminded that death is a part of the season of life. It is a story light leading one through the darkness and understanding after deep confusion.
