About Us

The story of how Sunny the Firefly got his moms... Lee Ann and Rebecca met one day when Lee Ann came across Rebecca's art booth at a local art festival. So impressed with her expressive drawing and captivating style, Lee Ann encouraged Rebecca to apply for a featured artist spot at a collective gallery she belonged to. Rebecca applied and easily got the featured spot. They stayed in contact over the years and admired each other's art and journey. Rebecca eventually went on to take ownership of the curator position of the Highline Coffee Art Space in Worthington.


Meanwhile, Lee Ann had this book she had written years ago and was stuck trying to figure out how to illustrate it herself when a friend innocently asked, "Do you have to be the one to illustrate it or could you find someone else to do it?" A light went off and immediately Lee Ann thought of Rebecca's expressive artwork. 


Shortly after, Lee Ann reached out to Rebecca to pitch the idea. And Rebecca said YES making Lee Ann the happiest author-to-be in town. The two have been an unstoppable pair ever since! They encourage each other, push each other and work beautifully together.
