You really have a talent for making things soft, vibrant, fresh, colorful and alive all at the same time. I can almost hear them!

Shannon Melville said...

Lovely take on the traditional string instrument idea that so many of us have done (including myself). I love the colours in the forest and it is nice that girl and bear are friends. I really love the illos you did for Sugary and also Packed. Your illustrations always seem very well planned, the compositions are great, the pencil application is gentle but there is still always enough contrast, the colours are harmonious, the characters are charming and you seem to be able to gage just the right amount of detail, not too much, not too little. I always admire your work as you can see :)
