Illustrator Announcement!


I’m excited to announce that Lea Lyon will be my illustrator for my on-the-way-to-publishing-story Lailah’s LunchboxI remember telling the editor of Tilbury House Publishing I could visualize Lailah’s Lunchbox with some watercolor illustrations, and Lea Lyon’s work is beautiful. She also has a unique way in which she illustrates from quirky angles which I like as when I take photos I like to photograph things from quirky angles. Like this one from the ground up…

Or this one of a cafeteria from way up…

Lea is also a children’s book illustrator with five published picture books, four of which have won awards! Check out her books here. Lea Lyon’s website is here and looking forward to seeing what my story will become! I especially can’t wait to see what Lailah looks like! Here’s a portrait of Lea’s I love from the site of a child. I love her paintings of children.

Did I mention I Love watercolors?!



About Doodling Through Life

I doodle. All the time. Doodling helps me make sense of the world around me. When I doodle, whether it be swirls or figurines, I am transformed to a world in which my doodles live, and my thoughts become clear. My mind breathes. Through my art medium of pencils, paint, potting soil, and pixels, I thrive. I am a teacher and have taught 2nd grade in Fulton County Schools in Atlanta, Georgia for 4 years. I am currently a Stay-At-Home-Mommy to a ___ daughter (she was born in June 2010—you can do the math !) and a ___ preschooler (she was born November 2012), an an infant (August 2017) who is exploring my creative outlet via the aforementioned 4 P’s! So far, I’m an author whose book Lailah’s Lunchbox was published in 2015 via Tilbury House Publishing. I have 2 new picture books projected for 2019: Amira's Picture Day (Holiday House, 2019) and Let Me Show You The Way (Eerdmans, 2019)! I’m an Atlanta based children-family-lifestyle photographer on weekends. Thank you for stopping by!
