Sometimes when things are at their darkest, is when God likes to show up with new hope! After losing my job in 2010, I wanted something special to give my granddaughters for Christmas. So I wrote a children's book all about them! When I finished the book I realized that the images I used, had been stored in my computer for so long, and they were actually kind of special. Before I knew it I was starting a business, and the art just kept coming! Backyard Dreamz got its name because that's where all the stories that I've told my children and grandchildren over the years originated. I love to feed into the imagination of children, because with a child anything is possible! I think imagination is the beginning of many great things!
