Philomena Höltkemeier and I met in 2010. She had just written a children's book story; I was hoping to illustrate one-- somewhere along life. Philo asked if I wanted to illustrate the book by any chance and I didn't think twice to yes.
5 years in the making, gathering many supporters and talents along the way, Small Minna (Die Kleine Minna) was published in Germany in both German and English in 2016. The hand-bound collector's edition is a truly lovely piece . I would have fallen in love with it had I met this book as a child.
We are happy to see the book travel around the world and hope to see Small Minna go on bigger adventures!
