My Forest is Green

I couldn’t be happier with how this book turned out!

Written by Darren Lebeuf and published by Kids Can Press, My Forest is Green follows a young artist as he finds inspiration in his daily walks through a neighbouring urban forest.

It’s very much an art book as it touches on all kinds of arts and craft mediums: sponge painting, paper collage, watercolour, rock painting, snow sculpting, collecting leaves, to name a few. But it’s also a book that encourages us to slow down and appreciate nature through touch, sight and sound.

My Forest is Green has received starred reviews by Kirkus and Quill & Quire.

Love You Head to Toe

My first authored & illustrated book is here! Love You Head to Toe is a celebration of babies and the funny little ways they sometimes remind us of animals: from bear hugs to chipmunk cheeks, hippo yawns to starfish stretches. Find it at a bookstore near you! Published by Owlkids.


My friend and fellow creator, Thao Lam and I held a Double Book Launch at Queen Books to celebrate the release of our books. We were so happy with the turnout from friends and family. Thank you!

Birthdays Around the World

I'm so pleased to announce the release of my new illustrated book, Birthdays Around the World, written by Margriet Ruurs and published by Kids Can Press. 

Inside, you'll find 14 children from around the globe sharing how they celebrate their special day...all of which are children that author Margriet Ruurs actually met during her travels. How cool is that?! There are so many different foods, games, ceremonies and traditions packed into this book that I think it'll interest kids and adult readers alike!
