Quite often words and music inspire the illustrations I do. It might be just a throwaway line or a single word, in this case 'Candy'. Candy is more of an American phrase, we in Australia call sweets, particularly hard candy, lollies.
As a diabetic these are a definite no no for me but it always amazes and concerns me how much hidden sugar is contained in 'regular' food. More so how much is directed at children especially now we are more aware of the toxic inflammatory effects of sugar on our bodies and the addictive nature of its response on our brains.
The epidemic of diet related poor health and weight issues, of which I'm a victim, is tragic and so unnecessary. But if you even take a passing glance at the food labels it's pretty clear why!
Since becoming a Paleo eater I can't testify to the difference living clean living makes to mind body and spirit. I have been able to loose weight, my blood sugar levels have normalised to the point I no longer need medication and my brain clarity and moods have improved beyond anything I could have believed. It's that old thing, you don't know how bad it was until you feel so much better!

I have been getting a few enquiries regarding how to purchase 'Stop! I Don't Like That! The book was has just been launched this last weekend and I am just waiting to hear back about where it can be purchased and for how much. I will post a link here as soon as I know. From what I have heard it has been very well received and is already going international.
In the mean time I am posting a link to a FREE downloadable PDF colouring book called Angela Angels Message, Kerene Whelan wrote this as a short story for children and I have put together some accompanying colouring pages for printing at home. Enjoy!

It has been so long since I have posted here, life has been extremely busy to say the least. However, I have some exciting news…the children’s book that I have illustrated is now in print, WHOOT!
It’s title is ‘Stop! I Don’t Like That!’ written by Kerene Wheelan. It is an education resource book to teach kids that it is okay to say stop if someone is doing something they don’t like, and to seek out adult help to feel safe again.
Whether it’s grandma with her sloppy kisses or your big brother yelling at you it’s okay to say you don’t like what someone is doing or how someone is behaving.
This has been a very exciting step for me and I have already begun another project working on a colouring book as a resource to accompany another story. It’s so wonderful to be working on my own projects and doing what I love.
I have also been working with a great bunch of ladies as they establish a very successful Pop Up Shop enterprise. I have developed their logo and have created posters for advertising their events.
