From the inspiration of our ideas, through the creation of the art of our books, we share many stories, techniques and motivational messages—encouraging children to create and share their own stories and art in multiple ways.

As creators of children’s books we are dedicated to providing engaging, educational, and entertaining programming to promote literacy & the arts.

The Adventure of Research

All we need to be is curious—and opportunities to learn are all around us to explore our world!  Research can be an exciting and wondrous adventure—and it certainly is for authors and artists!  Within our presentations we share how our research and travel adventures inform and inspire how we illustrate our books.


The Importance of Journals

Everyone is creative—and all of us have ideas.  Journals are especially important for artists and writers!  Creating a book requires a lot of imagination, ideas—and a place to explore them.  Within our programs we share many examples of how our journals provide an important place for us to begin exploring and developing our book ideas.  


The Joy of Composition

To communicate artfully with others—one must be a good composer.  Creating a picture book requires many compositional skills of writing, conceptual design and illustration. Within our presentations we share many examples of how we brainstorm, develop and compose our ideas from our rough drafts, through the creation of our final art and books!

Our presentations take audiences of all ages on an informative and imaginative journey as we share our creative processes of illustrating stories and picture books.

Here are some of our key program messages to nurture creativity—and to support children in bringing their own stories to life through words and pictures…
