Modest Beginnings

Embarking on what I think is going to be a career in picture book illustration is exciting and daunting.  Luckily,  I am not on my own.  
Thanks to Michael Katz of Tradewind Books (http://www.tradewindbooks.com/), I have been introduced to the world of children's picture books and writing.
Thanks to Jennifer Mann (http://www.jenniferkmann.com/), who kick-started this blog and unbeknownst to her, has become my mentor.  She is hugely talented and published with Candlewick Press.
Not a lot of drawings at the moment, but here is the one that started this all back in the Fall of 2011.  It is called, "Ella."
Charcoal and watercolour.


  1. Hooray! You did it!! I love it! Your work is wonderful Nancy. Can't wait to see more!

  2. Thanks, Jennifer. I'll aim for the Illustration Friday deadline.
