Behind the Scenes

There are many different ways of illustrating children’s picture story books 

My way of illustrating “Who Snatched Nanna’s Soap?” was inspired by observing my granddaughters playing freely exploring natural resources like sand, sticks, flowers, leaves as well as paint and glue in their messy play in my backyard.

Following my granddaughters spontaneous creations lead to my veranda turning into my outdoor art studio.

Now a year later I am happy to share my granddaughter’s favourite story with many more kids.
