Shari-Anne has loved drawing and painting since she was tiny. Her grandmother, an artist, lived in a log cabin by the sea on Vancouver Island, and time with her there shaped Shari-Anne's creative imagination, and inspired her to go to art school in Toronto. She currently lives in a treehouse with her husband and three glorious sons. In real life, they live in a lovely apartment in Vancouver BC. They enjoy hiking, lake swimming, visiting the Okanagan, hot chocolate, and reading stories.
