After working on illustrations for over three years I am thrilled to say that Chicago Treasure is now available!
This is a wonderful project that features photos of children from all over Chicago who have now found themselves in leading roles of classic fairy tales, nursery rhymes and folk tales. It has been so much fun transforming the world around these kids into these classic settings with my illustrations and characters.
I love that with this book, these images and these children we are celebrating access and inclusion for everyone. Chicago’s Treasure really is it’s children!
All author proceeds from sales of Chicago Treasure will be donated to two Chicago-based nonprofit service agencies:
The Chicago Lighthouse for People who are Blind or Visually Impaired,
and Access Living.
