Although best known for her Harry Potter illustrations, Mary has numerous children's & chapter books to her credit. Originally working exclusively in pastel, Mary also enjoys working in mixed media to create magic.


cr219 Raul Colon continues to bring history to life with his portrayals of famous figures & folktales. Raul works with a watercolor wash and colored pencil giving his illustrations an almost velvety illusion. One of Raul's recent books was written by Santa Ana's very own Rueben Martinez. Rueben will also be at our opening.





Lou Fancher &  

Steve Johnson, the dynamic husband & wife team, display amazing versatility in every diverse book they illustrate. Working in collage and mixed media they flawlessly portray the time and essence of a book in every page they create.





 Elisa Kleven how do you cut such teeny tiny pieces of paper and fabric to make your intricate illustrations? Always thought provoking and full of whimsy, Elisa writes & illustrates most of her charming books. She always touches the heart.





grp281 Robin Preiss Glasser

is the delightful illustrator of the Fancy Nancy books. With more than 40 books to her credit, Robin brightens everyone's day with her wit & charm. For the first time, Fancy Nancy illustrations available for purchase! Original illustrations are painted using pen & ink and watercolor.  


Look for the announcement of our special limited edition prints of select Fancy Nancy images.
