Winter Wine & Stein 2016

Just finished the art for Potter Park Zoo's SUPER fun adults-only winter event.  I really love how it turned out, as this year it features one of my favorite birds, the Bali Myna.

Snip snip snip snip

With only a few months to go before my illustration show, I'm in full production mode. I feel like Edward Scissorhands and my house is dusted in a snowstorm of paper confetti.  So basically, I'm having the time of my life. :)

Deming Grant Show Preview

The art pieces for my March 2017 children's literature illustration show are starting to percolate. Here's another preview of a cut illustration in progress, the piece is based on the book Jane Eyre. 

This show is funded in part by Barbara Deming Memorial Fund. Thanks to their generous grant and my partnership with Lansing Art Gallery, I am just so excited about this exhibition!

Cutie sisters Jade and Josie from Missouri sent me this darling photo of them enjoying my book The Purple Pussycat. Nice to see sibling reading replacing sibling rivalry!  Thanks for the photo ladies, it gave my heart a squeeze!

The Purple Pussycat by Margaret Hillert, illustrated by me can be purchased through Norwood House Press and is also available via Amazon
