Favorite Author- Denise Fleming

Favorite Author: 
Denise Fleming

I grew up in a comfortable, middle-class family in Toledo, Ohio. My father spent a great deal of his free time building furniture; my mother was very active in local theater. My sister and I divided our time between making things in the workshop and putting on neighborhood productions. 

Papermaking for me is cathartic. Part of its appeal is that it's very physical—toting buckets of water, beating large quantities of pulp, hand-mixing huge vats of color. It's different from the Bob Cratchit-like existence that my former finely detailed style required—hunched over my drawing board with electric pencil sharpener close at hand. What other medium requires that you be up to your elbows in brilliant color? Credit: Denise Fleming Website

Today we are going to share books from such a wonderful author and artist! did you know she makes her own paper ? Her illustrations are beautiful in each of her books and she will teach us some new words and maybe point out some we have already learned!
