ARTIST STATEMENT

  • I love experimenting with new ways to create art for children’s picture books through non-traditional mediums and methods. My books are inspired by my purpose to support children’s’ imaginations, intuitions, and feelings of interconnectedness with the world around them. Find out more at me at andreaskyberg.com
