Art and Starlings

I'm bubbling about the SCBWI conference today.
This is the weekend children's book illustrators and writers in my region gather like starlings.
I go for the coffee and the courage. 
For inspiration and advice.
A break!
To find out about thrilling new books. 
To hug and high-five friends and peers.
To gain wisdom about crafting words and art.
My heart flies high. 

I'm bringing new art. More here. 

Art grown out of Joy Chu's UCSD Thinking in Pictures class. 
What a class!
Here's a peek at one of my projects:

Adventure awaits!
If you are one of my writer or artist buddies, I hope to see you there!

How I'd like to be there! Mainly to meet you in your person (feel I've met your mind and heart!) I have an idea for a children's book - will be working on it in the next little while. It is a true story of a woman in Sheshatshiu , the First Nations reserve where I work and I want to write it in three versions - picture book, chapter book and graphic novel. Ambitious much!
Any whoozie - have a total ball and get all fired up like I know you will...

It was great seeing you at the conference again. I love seeing your artwork and reading your words. I'm the homeschooling mom with 5 kids, if that helps you remember me.
