THANK YOU FOR BEING YOU
I’m excited to announce the upcoming release of fellow girl momma, wellness coach, yogi and now children’s book author, Ambar Gingerelli first publication, “Thank You For Being You” that I had the absolute pleasure of illustrating! Be sure to give her a follow for the book's upcoming release dates and more information! Link below.
It was a sweet collaboration of sorts including lots of input from our daughters who happen to be the same age! This is my first time illustrating an entire book, which happened to be during the height of the pandemic (2020) so never actually meeting in person, working through zoom calls, phone calls, countless emails while homeschooling…but every second worth the experience to convey the book’s home hitting message while working side by side #meandavaavaandme May she and all our crazy lil ones know just how much they motivate, inspire and teach us!
Writing was my first art form. As a child I'd create my own books, write novel cards (still do), and fill journal upon journal of book ideas. I have always been fascinated and motivated by creative nonfiction writers such as Dan Eldon, Sabrina Ward Harrison, and the journals of Frida Kahlo. I have always been comforted by the mothy smell of the pages of an old book and excited folding back the pages of a new one. I hope there will always be a love of real books. I believe in sharing our own truths, we find humility and connection within the world around us.
Since 2011 I have self-published 6 creative non-fiction books and a new one in the works. Click on the links below to preview/purchase my books, available through Blurb and Amazon.
