I have some exciting news! I am now represented by the Bright Agency for picture books and licensing! I am really looking forward to this new opportunity and couldn’t be more grateful to have my portfolio next to so many amazing artists.
Very excited to announce that I will be doing a 1-day drawing workshop with the fine folks at Good Manner. This is something I have been wanting to do for a long time and the stars alined with this one and I am so excited to tell you about it!
As you know I have a huge passion for picture books as does everyone at Good Manner. We came together and wanted to create a workshop that brings our love of picture books and drawing so we came up with this workshop. We will study various characters from our favorite picture books and use them as the groundwork to teach children how to come up with their own characters. Using basic shapes and lines we will explore the foundation of creating characters - whether they are human, animal or object. We will play around with how to draw emotions and how to add details to create a unique character all their own.
The workshop fee includes some pretty special things to make your child’s day really memorable. The cost covers:
• Entry fee
• Tote bag
• Workshop Kit - includes a folder with worksheets, a drawing journal and pencil.
• A polaroid portrait (part of the drawing process - just wait!)
• Light refreshments
• And an amazing, unforgettable experience for both parent/guardian and child.
I hope you can join me on Saturday June 1st, 2019 from 10:30 - 12:00 PM
Head over to Good Manner to find out more information and to purchase the workshop! I can’t wait to meet everyone and draw!
Honored and humbled to have won the 2019 SCBWI Marvelous Midwest Grand Prize Illustration Award a few weeks back. I can’t say it enough, how lucky I feel to be part of such a great society. The conference did not disappoint - even if I was sick. It didn’t stop me from filling up 20 pages of notes in my sketchbook and connecting with old friends and new friends. So thankful and so happy!
