    And look what he brought!

    No, it's not a book. Yet.  But it will be when it's finished growing up (March 2014).

    This happy little package here is just the first proof (along with a save-the-date sort of postcard) for me to review before it's sent to the printers.  After three years of writing and sketching, and tweaking and erasing, Oliver's Tree has finally grown into a reality.  This will be my very first children's book, and I am over-the-moon-excited for the day when I can hold it in my hands and read it to my kids.  But, I feel sorry for my family when I eventually get to see this in stores, I think I may have to be restrained from making public announcements and doing happy dances.

    Can't wait to show you more, especially some fun little announcement cards that I'm in the process of designing.  Those will be included in certain packages to certain customers of a certain shop I could name...  :)

      My daughter and I love your sweet book. Your illustrations are my favorite out of all the books I’ve read her in her two years of life! Just wanted to say thank you for writing a quality book; and we hope you write more about Oliver and his friends. God Bless. Ashley

      Just wanted to say I found your site after ordering numerous prints from your etsy store for my baby’s room. I was going to say that you should consider illustrating children’s books, and then I saw this post! How wonderful :-) I pre-ordered a copy on amazon, can’t wait to get it. Congratulations, your art is really beautiful and sweet.

      I’m so excited to see that you wrote a book! Your prints are wonderful! I have the Baby Mine one-limited edition with crowns- over my daughter’s crib. It is just perfect!
