International Women’s Day 2021

Happy International Women’s Day 2021
Celebrating the AMAZING, Beatrix Potter!
Not only was B a gifted watercolourist & author of beloved classic children’s books, did you know she was an accomplished naturalist during the Victorian Era? Curious about how FUNGI reproduced, she created microscopic drawings & submitted her research 🔬 which was rebuffed by the Director of The Kew because of her sex and amateur status & withdrawn from The Linnean Society in 1897…
💯 years later, in 1997 The Linnean Society rediscovered her work and issued a posthumous apology to Potter for the sexism displayed in its handling of her research. 🙌🏻

🍄 FUNGI just may be the topic of Sylvie Greendale BOOK 3….

Sylvie’s Surreal Sleepscape

Sylvie Greendale . end pages

1st illustration for Storyteller Academy class, “Creating Atmosphere”, with Illustrator, Isabella Kung.

This is a surreal sleepscape for all the Sylvie Greendale book end pages. The night scene (inspired by Marc Chagall’s blue paintings) would be the same for each book, but the DREAM DOODLES would change, depicting jumbled info Sylvie learned that day which her subconscious is processing while asleep.

introducing Sylvie Greendale

“Sylvie Greendale takes a walk, reveling in the wee wonders of the world around her and wondering why they really matter…

…’Matter matters”, concluded Sylvie Greendale.”

NEW passion project! a CHILDREN’S BOOK SERIES!

Sylvie Greendale is in this world, yet not of it. She is me as a 1st grader, exploring the world around her + me as a mother of 2 amazing humans, with the wisdom of a middle aged woman.

& a wordNERD.

STAY TUNED!!

perfectionism & publishing

“Is Your Brain in Bed, Sleepyhead?” REVISED illustrations by Maryann Wohlwend

after completing all the illustrations on my 1st picture book job, the little perfectionist inside took 1 look and said, “NOPE!” …another pad of Bristol board, pile of silver markers, week of power sketching with a flow of French-pressed Italian Roast, & probably another prescription on my reading glasses later, the book is almost ready to publish!

COMING SOON!
