Meet The Artist - "On The Count Of Three - Lucy's and Liam's Tiny Adventure!"
In 2021 a new children's book will be hitting the market.
"On The Count of Three - Lucy and Liam's Tiny Adventure!" tells the story of a brother and sister who get up-close and personal with the British countryside.
The book is authored by Teri Moran and illustrated by Carla Gebhard, and they both hope that their story will become a timeless and classic addition to the bookshelves of children everywhere.
Today we meet Carla - a watercolour artist whose passion for nature inspires her every day.
Carla was overjoyed to be brought on board as the sole illustrator for this project, saying "within my own work I focus mainly on animals, nature and all things whimsical which is why 'On the Count of Three' is so perfect for me and my work - it incorporates all three things! Along with creating artwork for children that hopefully makes them smile and feel all warm inside, I also want to help inspire children to love and care for the nature around them."
Carla's love of children's book illustrations can be traced back to her own childhood.
She says "when I was little I didn’t really have an interest in reading as I really struggled - which now makes sense as I was later diagnosed with Dyslexia when I was 21 years old. But I have always loved looking at the beautiful illustrations, and that has slowly developed into a slight obsession as I’ve gotten older. I now find it impossible to walk past children’s books without having a little look, and I have an ever-growing collection of children’s books. I just love how they make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside!"
