I love to write in my "take and show" voice, to bring my reader into every landscape, scene, and adventure, as I write "the movie in my head," visualizing every detail. Great Polar Bear, is the first book I was asked to illustrate, and as I illustrated this Arctic biome book, in my studio, the scenes in my mind became sketches, became illustrations. It was exciting to watch creamy rough sheets of heavy watercolour paper become a palette of vibrant gouache colours, created just for this book......then to cut and tear shapes from those sheets of colour and arrange and glue them to create a world of ice and snow, for my hero....Great Polar Bear.
