I have been writing and illustrating children’s books on the arts for a number of years. I began this when I noticed that children knew a tremendous amount about dinosaurs (their names; what they ate; where they lived etc.) but very little about the arts. If they knew all about the Stegosaurus, they could surely understand the meaning of Abstract Expressionism and other forms of artistic expressions.
The enthusiasm of the young people who read Camille’s Fakes, spurred me on to creating a series of books on the art and cultures of different countries.
