I am so enjoying your work, fellow SCBWI member! Thanks for the story about your dad, and for your terrific illo.

Wise words from a wise daughter and mama.

What a lovely story to go along with a great illustration. It reminds me of my childhood when my mum and I would go visit family in England during the summers. My grandad was an avid gardener and I can remember walking behind him with a jar of mayo to dip fresh spring onions that I would pull while he worked out there. I miss him.

I especially like the mom in this one, Heather. I love how she's sitting. Nice details of the patio in the background too.

You really do beautiful work.

I love your illos! Always full of great style!
