Making Children's Picture books is a passion of mine. I am a mother of three young children so reading is a daily joy in my house. If you are interested in buying one of my books please follow the links next to each picture. If you would like to work with me to bring a book you've written to life please see the bottom of this page for more information.
If you would like to commission me to paint a portrait please visit my Commissions page.
Let's make a Picture Book!
Making your own Picture book is such a wonderful experience and I appreciate you finding me and reading this far. The process that I like to follow is this.
Step 1 - We look over your manuscript.
Here we divide out the text and share any visions you have for the aesthetic of the book.
I am happy to accept any amount of input from you in this area.
Step 2 - I would create a storyboard of your book.
These are rough sketches, that show you how each page would be laid out. I would also create some character sketches so that you could see your main character(s) in a more final view.
At this point we would go over how things look and make any changes that are necessary.
Step 3 - I start drawing. This step takes some time.
Step 4 - You receive the pdf file ready to upload to the printer.
This is not a fast process, expect a couple months, but together we will get your book looking perfect. All the drawing that I've done in my books has been done using ink and everything was done by hand. Cost is based on a lot of different factors that go into illustrating a picture book, like sizing, number of pages, and complexity of the illustrations needed. Please Contact me and we can discuss a quote specific to your project.
