Over in the Meadow


I am so excited to announce that my picture book Over in the Meadow is now available at Barefoot Books. The Barefoot team partnered with Karrot Animation in London to animate my illustrations. I teared up the first time I saw it. The combination of art & Susan Reed's beautiful music was just so perfect! I hope you enjoy it just as much as I did. The book Over in the Meadow is sold with a c-d & we encourage it to be a parent, child sing along. Creating the art for these kind of books is always a long process with lots of challenging myself to dig deeper, push my style farther, to try & create pure joy on each spread. I hope you pick up Over in the Meadow & enjoy it with the little ones in your life.

Yeah! Love this, plus Bearfoot books is a great company to be working with. Back in my publishing days everyone was itching to go and work with them. Nice one!

Hi Girls, Thanks for the kind words & stopping by my blog. This was an exciting one for me! I think the best part was seeing my son's face light up when he saw the animated video. I was pretty proud mommy.
