Author & Illustrator
A note from Jeri
As a child, I would spend hours immersed in the detail and beauty of the illustrations in our storybooks. To this very day, it is usually the images from these books that I recall, even though the story itself may be long forgotten to me. I vaguely remember the story of the Shoemakers Elves.... but the painting of those little elves working feverishly in the candlelight with the moon glowing through the mullioned windows, is forever etched in my memory. Little Golden books illustrated by Eloise Wilkin still sit on my bookshelf and my tattered copies of Beatrix Potter's books are often referred to for inspiration.
My goal is to create storybooks filled with delightfully detailed artwork and stories that are fun to read .
I do not fancy myself a great writer, rather a fabler, using rich and expressive words to enhance my illustrations and tell a story. It takes about 2 years for me to complete the artwork for one large storybook, and a year to complete a smaller "Pippity Trimble Tales" book. All of my large books contain 36 pages and the small books contain 28 pages of artwork rendered in persnickety detail. These are high quality, Heirloom books with embossed book jackets, smythe sewn pages, illustrated end-papers and a book plate
