This is Ella

Happy World Down Syndrome Day!

I want to share with you all a project I am currently working on illustrating.

‘This is Ella’ is a beautifully written book about a vivacious little girl named Ella. This book is designed to help children see the beauty in diversity.

Ella is a fun loving little girl, just about to start school. While she may speak a little differently than you, and she may look a little different than you, she can be a really good friend.

This is a grassroots project, written by my friend Krista Lee Ewert, who also happens to be Ella’s mom.

Woodland Literacy

Just a little preview of a project I’ve been working on. It’s a rather large piece which will serve as the entrance to the children’s area in the Oak Harbor Library. I’ve been working on it since March. It’s been a lot of research and sketching up to this point, but I’m finally getting to the fun part. Shooting for an Oct/Nov install – Lord willing.  There’s still a lot of work ahead of me but I can’t wait to share the finished work with the people at Oak Harbor.  The librarians there have been so helpful and supportive during the research period of this project. I am so grateful.
