The Morning We Met

I've always had a dream of writing and illustrating a picture book. There are so many steps and so many hands to bring something like this to print. A tiny idea turned into something quite special. So many hurtles and detours along the way, but I wouldn't change a thing, because this little book is my dream come true. The Morning We Met will forever be my favourite thing I created in my little studio.


This is a sweet story about all of the different ways that babies come to their parents. Whatever your story of becoming a parent looks like, I hope this book touches your heart and rekindles the magic that was the first moment you met your babies. 

​Inside every copy of the “Artists’ Edition” of The Morning We Met, the reader will discover two full-colour 8”x8” frameable prints of my large scale acrylic paintings that are featured in the story, a full-colour 8”x8” print of the cover art and five 5"x7" prints of my most popular paintings.
