Meet the Author

Mati Rose McDonough is an artist and illustrator who lives in San Francisco, CA, where she regularly encounters lucky elephants, talking birds and a mysterious girl who always wears feathers in her hair. These creatures of mystery and grace remind Mati daily that no one is too old for magic or too young for beauty, so she paints their stories in paint, fabric, found paper and canvas for fans of hope and adventure all over our dear world. When she’s not covered in paint you can find her biking to the ocean, drinking tea and searching for colorful baubles of inspiration to share with you. Mati studied painting at the California College of the Arts and has had many shows around the country. Mati has taught around the country at Art Nest in Utah, Artful Journey in California and Toscana Americana in Italy. She is represented by Lilla Rogers Studio in illustration and licensing and has had her art published on Patagonia shirts, featured in Pier 1, University Game boards, Madison Park Greeting products and Oopsy Daisy canvases. Mati has also been included in several magazines and books including features in Artful Blogging magazine and The Handmade Marketplace book. www.matirose.com

Look like something I would be interested in but the sample only has the cover and some blank pages. I mean who's going to buy a book they can't thumb thru?

The beautiful book I am going to buy, has 128 pages, not sure where you are getting that the book only has a few pages. Very Strange, I can't wait to get my hands on it, it looks like a lot of fun!!
