Close to my heart…

I’m happy to finally be sharing with you something that has been so close to my heart for this past year. It’s  called “Noisy Poems for  a Busy Day”, it’s a collection of fun children’s poems… and I illustrated it!!!

It is going to be published by Kids Can Press and is due to be on shelves by this coming December. It was written by  Robert Heidbreder. He’s a retired school teacher living in Vancouver, who now works as a children’s book author.

Every part of this project has been a dream come true for me. I’m still pinching myself to believe it’s all real. Robert’s poems were a complete joy to illustrate, he was so supportive of my work .

I feel thankful that my art director Yvette saw the potential in me for this book. It was a crazy amount of work, but I feel like the luckiest person in the world that I got to do it.

I hope once it’s out there in the world it will bring as much happiness to others as it has brought to me!

  1. Way to go, it’s so beautiful! I recognize the burping girl from your handy table rules printout. It hangs above my kitchen table and keeps my son’s bum in his chair. Thanks for that by the way!
