children’s books


I have had the delight of illustrating over twenty children’s books, in a variety of media for trade, educational, and self-publishers.

Repetition and movement are the order of the day in this hypnotic charmer of a book, in which the lilting prose is well matched by watercolours that seem to roll off the pages with their own bright rhythm.

The colorful illustrations by Heather Castles are soft and muted, adding to the seriousness of the subject. The expressions on the faces of the multi-cultural children are precious and touching.
