After illustrating nearly 30 children's books,
including a Caldecott Honor for Hush! A Thai Lullaby,
Holly Meade found a new love: woodblock printing.

After contacting Holly about featuring her work,
I received a note from her daughter telling me that
Holly had passed away from cancer in June of 2013.
Her talent and appreciation of the world around her
are evident in her art; she has left quite a lovely legacy.
