THANK YOU for visiting !!! The following details my art background and how this book was created ~ Don't miss viewing sample pages * Scroll down to buy a signed copy *
I grew up in Ohio where I spent a lot of time daydreaming and doodling! And so, graduated with a BFA in Industrial Design, working for many years sketching innovative ideas for products, exhibits and displays. Today I'm an independent artist and the work I do is created at my studio in Austin,TX.
When our kids were little, I wanted to create a space for them that was bright and cheerful but finding the right art just wasn't easy! One afternoon I picked up my brushes and painted the art I imagined. Thinking others might be on the lookout for colorful art too, we had those paintings made into prints which I began selling at festivals, in local shops and on-line. Commission requests came in for bumblebees, dragonflies, zebras, fish, frogs, dogs and more!!! That work led me to do solo shows and pursue painting full-time, the popularity of my cat paintings then inspired the idea to write/illustrate a children's book featuring them...PURR-fect!!!
After hours juggling kids, revising verse and illustrating characters, my "Colorful Cats" have arrived! Delighting children as they learn their colors, the book carries with it the underlying and important message that we are ALL unique and colorful. It is the recipient of a Moonbeam Children's Book Award and I couldn't be more thrilled to share my story and cats with you today ~ KS
