Michele Beresford illustrates her books, as well as the books of others, using water color. Her lovable characters are typically the focus of each frame, often featured as a close up rather than a landscape. When possible, she paints from the visual perspective of children.
Our children are the future. That goes without saying. Raising well rounded, independent and healthy children is the challenge. Michele spent a lot of time reading in her family garden as a child. She learned the value of fresh fruit and vegetables. Her husband, the inspiration for the Mr. Kiwi series, also spent many happy moments of his childhood in his family garden in New Zealand. That is why a portion of the proceeds of the sales of the Mr. Kiwi go to the preservation and inspiration of children’s gardens.
Michele Beresford is both an author and illustrator. She has written and painted the Mr. Kiwi book series for children. You can reach her at email@example.com. She is available for talks about becoming an author, her Mr. Kiwi series and her paint to invent program.
Michele encourages email and feedback.
Mr. Kiwi: Trouble With Mr. Mow-It-All is the first book in the Mr. Kiwi series. Each of the books examines a childhood social issue and helps children to see the most positive way of overcoming obstacles in life.
A portion from the sale of each book is donated to the Kiwi Children’s Garden fund, helping to support existing children’s gardens or to begin new ones.
