“My parents passed on a legacy of giving and loving. I hope to honor that inheritance through creative projects.”
In the final days of book layout, before going to print, it became clear that I needed to express the meaningful reality that I experienced while making the illustrations.
Giving and loving were everyday activities in both of my parents lives. I have expressed my care and love toward people by giving gifts of creative projects my entire life.
My expression of love via creative projects simply went “up a notch,” by publishing the Leelanau Love ~ Color on Art Book. My reach simply became more expansive.
The image below is the inside cover and first page in the book, where I wrote a message to the recipients instead of a dedication.
