My first book project is finished and I received my personal copy in the mail! The authors self-published so supplies were limited. 2+ years in the making! Thank you to the authors, Karen and David Richards, who gave me this opportunity. Thanks to Jennifer Morris for the referral and the Greater Boston Illustrator’s Group, Priscilla Alpaugh Cotter, Sarah Brannen, and Mel Cataldo for their advice and encouragement along the way. Thanks especially to my family who have been there since the beginning- from the reference-gathering road trip to North Carolina, backyard photo shoots, and the many critiques along the way!
