Nurture your gifts

A little reminder on my desk today. Sorting through some sketches from the past weeks...this little girl spoke to me today.  Sometimes I get so overwhelmed by all of the beautiful amazing!! art that I see on the internet...which is often so inspiring but also can have the opposite effect where its tempting to get disheartened and feel crappy about my own work. But I am reminded that it is so important to focus inward as well at our own strengths and look for sparks of beauty in our own work...follow those and keep going...to keep making art!!
For every one of us, no matter what we do, it is important to develop our unique gifts.

The Adventures Of Coco and Bee





Looking at my illustration style it is probably obvious that I adore childrens book illustrations. With some of my favourite illustrators being Lucy Atwell, May Gibbs, Lauren Child, amongst many others. I have of course dreamed of illustrating my own books one day but I was thrilled when I was asked to illustrate my first childrens book, written by the lovely Stacy Cortez.
I am showing off some of the illustrations from the book; "The Adventures Of Coco and Bee; World Travellers".
I had so much fun illustrating the adventures of this brother and sister duo on their holiday in Paris...
As Stacy says it is the story of "A child's innocence and freedom to be whoever and whatever they want to be."
It is available here
