The Yoga Game by the Sea

It is official! The Yoga Game by the Sea is out! This is my first collaboration with the author Kathy Beliveau and the first book in the Yoga Game series. I could not be more thrilled to share this with you!

The first book in The Yoga Game series invites children of all ages to feel the waves of their breath, to connect with the joy of a diving dolphin and to discover the magic of nature. Play with the words, guess the riddles and enjoy an actual yoga practice— down by the sea. Entertaining rhymes, enchanting riddles and whimsical illustrations create a rich, multi-layered experience.

if i wrote a book

for as long as i can remember, i have always dreamed of being a children's book illustrator. 

right after i had hazel and i was having one of those new motherhood (oi) days when i received an email from Simply Read Books inquiring if i would be interested in doing a book project with them. my life was forever changed that day.

i jumped at the chance to do this project not knowing what i was in for. it has been an amazing two years - from reading stephany's beautiful manuscript, working on my first sketches to mailing off my final images.

i have worked with so many amazing and talented people during the production of this book and i can't believe i finally get to hold this in my hands today.

one of my favorite pages

thank you to Kallie + Dimeter for letting me take on this book. Stephany for writing words that i cherish so much. Susan for showing me the ropes and for the harshest critiques of my work i have ever read - this book would not be where it is today. Sara for being an amazing children's book designer. my mom and husband for watching hazel and for cheering me on. and for all the wonderful friends i have met along the way - thank you!
