This illustration has so much impact. Wonderful use of watercolour Ellen, and I bet the pages are full of such images. It looks like this is going to be a book to add to my list :o)

Congratulations, Ellen. Like the composition and impactful use of color! I did illustrations for a bio about Viginia Sneve for an educational publication. Interesting woman.

Cheryl - any more information about the bio? Is there a link for that?
