My Cover Art for a Friend's Book

My Cover Art for “Where Bluebirds Fly” by Shirley Nichol Hellam

I have done cover art for magazines and books before. This is the third cover I have done for my friend Shirley Nichol Hellam. We have known each other for some time, have attended the same lay ministry classes and have worked on a magazine called “s.m.i.l.e.” for seniors in hospice, residences and nursing homes. In the past Shirley has donated all of the funds resulting from her book sales to charity, but this time she has published her book for herself and I applaud her.

Shirley Nichol Hellam is a mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, who served in the Canadian Armed Forces, was the director of a local food bank/thrift shop for many years, and is a lay worship leader.
She pours the wisdom and compassion gained into her sermons and short stories. I am very proud to be the artist she chose to illustrate her book cover. I wish her all the best in her book promotion.
