It’s Official! I have been chosen for the Joanne Fitzgerld Illustrator in Residnce Program 2016!

I am so thrilled to announce that I have been chosen this year for the Joanne Fitzgerald Illustrator in Residence Program at the Edmonton Public Library, Stanley A. MIlner branch. From October 17th to November 10th, I will be at the downtown branch teaching workshops and classes to elementary schools, workshops with adults, one on one portfolio reviews as well as a few outside appearances at Nina Haggerty and surrounding high schools.

The Joanne Fitzgerald Illustrator in Residence Program was developed through the assistance of Joanne’s family and IBBY Canada and each year, a Canadian Children’s Illustrator is selected to share their work and ideas with children in a central library environment. For the past three years the program has been offered in Toronto however, this will be the very first year that Edmonton has hosted this program http://www.ibby-canada.org

I will be travelling to Edmonton by car with my two daughters and a whole lot of stuff. We hit the road this Thursday and plan to take a leisurely drive through the Rockies and arrive by Saturday. I plan to keep a blog of my travels right here for those that might be interested as well as on Facebook. Each day there will be something new to report and to see! I can’t wait to meet all you Edmontonians and to share my passion for books and illustration with you!

See you all soon!
