About the Author & Illustrator
Carrie E. Martin is an artist residing in the United States. Her fascination with nature, animals and her love to find beauty in everyday things has sparked this new series of children's books, Evie & Lizzie. She wanted to show that no matter how small your world is, that great things can happen when you explore and use your imagination. Even greater things can happen when you have a good friend at your side to share it all with.
The illustrations came out of her love for creating with her hands, not just pictures, but real worlds come to life in her paper theater. Each picture is created with watercolor backgrounds, paper dolls and a variety of props, all painted and placed in her light box, then photographed for the page.
