Newly Published Books
I am working on a few self-authored books...
My process of picture book making...
I start by getting all my ideas down on paper, little thumbnails work great!
Then I refine my thumbnails,
'just like me'
After all the refining is done, an illustrator put together what is called a " picture book dummy". Since this is a family story, I had copies of it printed by Blurb. They did a great job.
This is a little sktech from 'just like me'
In 2016 I started a Master's degree in counseling psychology and art therapy. For now I have had to suspend my art class, but I hope to restart them when life isn't quite so busy. I have enjoyed such great groups of kids, it has been really fun teaching these classes.
art classes for kids
Learn To Draw are fun yet challenging art lessons taught in my home.
If your after-school program or kindergarten class is in the Calgary area and looking for an 'artist in residence', I would love to come and talk to you class about being an artist/illustrator, talk about the process of making a picture book and do an art project with the children. Please contact me for pricing and availability.
I'd love to hear from you.
