Brown Sugar Babe

I illustrated this picture book coming out in Jan 2020

"When a little girl has doubts about the color of her skin, her mother shows her all the wonderful, beautiful things brown can be! This message of self-love and acceptance uses rich, dreamy illustrations to celebrate the color using all the senses: sight, smell, touch, taste, and hearing."

- Author, Charlotte Watson Sherman

Alyssa Cole, A Prince on Paper


I was commissioned to create two promotional illustrations for a folktale called, “Phokojoe the Trickster God” in the romance novel a, A Prince on Paper by Alyssa Cole. 

The header to this webpage is a combination of both images and I loved working on them.
