Illustrator Laurie Barrows
Laurie Barrows is the artist who drew the wonderfully silly illustrations in Simon’s Hook, Katie’s Rose, The Magical Marvelous Megan G. Beamer, and If the World Were Blind.
Here is an excerpt about Laurie from a news article:
”Art should be fun!”, states artist Laurie Barrows, “Art should be available to everyone.” The artist’s work sparkles with playfulness. Her positive approach to life shines through. Bright color celebrates the joy the artist finds in her subject.
“I carry my philosophy of life into my work. I believe in a positive attitude and the power of love.”
“My goal with children’s art is to touch lives with the wonderful luxury of innocence by creating positive images for the young. Children need a positive and empowering environment in which to grow and flourish. Children need freedom to dream. Everyday should be a celebration of joy and wonder. Developing a sense of self through play fosters creativity, imagination, and problem solving. We can all benefit by returning to a simpler time, if only for a moment.”
“Success has many definitions. If my work makes you smile, and brightens your day, I’ve been successful.”
