I am so pleased to announce that my first Children's Book Illustration project is about to be released! To have my work in a published book is simply overwhelming and incredibly exciting. It was well over 12 months ago that Karina Hudson, a children's book author, initially approached me about illustrating some images for her moving story. After working on the project for so long, as well as waiting on the publishing process which can be quite lengthy,  it is so rewarding to see the end product in the flesh.

Karina holds 3 degrees in Education a Masters in Language and Literacy and she has taught in numerous schools, but in her spare time had taken to writing books. The storyline had been based on her own son's experiences which I find incredibly touching. 'My Two Houses' tells the story of a child who lives with the challenges of being in a blended family (a family that includes children of a previous marriage from one spouse or both). This can be a difficult and confusing time for everyone involved, and Karina had realised from her own experiences that it is important for the children involved to have something to help them through the process. She was saddened to discover that there weren't many books in the market which covered that topic, particularly from a Christian perspective. This was very important to her, and she wrote this book to act as an aid for young children who are walking through family break ups. 

'My Two Houses' by Karina Hudson is now available for purchase here.

Below are some photos from the Pre-Release Book Party.
