As a child I remember wondering how artists created their colorful works, and I enjoy showing children the process I follow to create images for books.

I bring early sketches and mockups of my illustrations, as well as original artwork, to show how an illustration evolves from a pencil scribble into a finished watercolor piece.

I bring along my messy watercolor palette, brushes and pencils and talk about how sometimes making an illustration can be fun and easy – and how other times, it can be messy and difficult.

There is plenty of question and answer time. I will tailor all my visits to suit the age and size of the audience.
