Illustrations for a children's book

Besides teaching art workshops in schools in the Ottawa region, I started to illustrate the story for a children's book this winter. My artist friend Stanley wrote the story. It is a fun and challenging work which I enjoy to do. No new painting to show you for a while. I'm just working on the book illustrations.


  1. Your illustrations look gorgeous! I'd certainly choose a book from the shelf if it looked like this inside. :) I had a go at illustrating a children's book a couple of years ago, not very successfully I'm afraid to say, there's a lot more to it than I ever thought.xx

    1. Hi Jess
      This my first attempt to illustrate a book. I will let you know how it goes. I'm at the beginning. Still lots of painting to do...

    2. Beautiful work. I'm a local writer and had my book illustrated by a local artist. There is so much talent in the Ottawa valley.

      Veronique, a few of your pieces grace my walls. I purchased a few items at the recent North Gower Craft sale.

      Please keep us posted on the illustrations for the children's book.

    3. Thanks Stefania. I'm almost finished illustration #2 for the book. Will upload it soon...See you sometime at the farmer's market in North Gower.
