Last winter, I was approached by author Mike Wilkins to discuss illustrating a project close to his heart, a children's novel, "Island Family". Truthfully, I had always wanted to illustrate a children's book, and although never having done

it before, jumped at the chance. Mike wanted a classic, hand drawn feel to the book, referencing "Charlotte's Web" as an aesthetic jumping point. I personally love illustrating with pen and ink, and the medium was perfect for the story. Mike's vivid detail helped bring the illustrations to life. The cover was done in watercolour and ink. This was an incredible project, and one I am honoured to have been a part of.
