Two years ago my friend Katrina Janzen asked me to illustrate a children's book for her. Little did she know at that time that I had always wanted to work on a children's book. The illustrating was definitely out of my comfort zone (especially considering the subject matter was rather unfamiliar to me!). I ended up having a lot of fun with it.
I'm happy to announce that it is finally available on www.amazon.com and www.amazon.ca. The proceeds will be helping literacy in Guatemala. For more information see the website for the book; www.inmypila.org.
I live in Southern Ontario on a farm with my husband, Dennis, and our two daughters. Painting out of my studio on our farm allows me to stay close to my family and to be surrounded by the natural landscape that continues to influence my work.
