We are absolutely thrilled to hear Debi won the Children’s Illustration competition to illustrate the book ‘Henry Talks to God’ The winning illustration and Debis reaction is below. We wish her every success with this book – the first of many we hope, and we look forward to seeing a copy if it when it is finished, hopefully to show our students on the college news blog!

I cant say just how excited I feel to have won this wonderful opportunity to illustrate my first childrens book. I loved creating this illustration, Christiana’s writing is beautifully descriptive and conjured up very inspiring ideas for me, I am thrilled and delighted that she and Abela publishing have chosen me to work with them on this project.

I feel blessed that my career has gotten off to such a flying start! many many thanks to LAC and especially Jan for her wonderful tuition, help and advice.

I’m so excited now to get to work and make my dream of illustrating a childrens book into a reality!
