An Umbrella for Shay

Today I can say that I am now officially a published book illustrator! My name is even on the cover!

I feel so excited and honored that I was asked by Karen to do this. The style of drawing and the materials used were both new to me and not at all what I’m used to, so I was out of my comfort zone. But that’s exactly why I’m so glad that I made myself give it a try. I learned so much from the experience and was able to feel a sense of accomplishment that I don’t often have anymore.

It feels so odd to type my name into amazon and have this book come up! I will always be so grateful to Karen for taking a chance on a stranger and giving me this opportunity!
