Vintage children’s books are a constant source of inspiration for me. I love discovering the works of sometimes overlooked illustrators.

I discovered her work at a thrift store through her book “The Cat at Night”. I especially love my original scholastic paperback version with the saturated colors on the construction like paper.

I predict that she will see a similar wave of attention that Charley Harper received after it was long overdue.
