Artist and illustrator Carol Dabney working on both oil and watercolor at home in Arkansas.

Well it was a very peaceful hobby that has become a wonderful job. It’s Quiet and learned from Elodie Bingham a dear sweet friend of mine from church. Together we talked about how to paint and write children’s stories, laughing as we went along. Also learned alot from Linda Nance a friend in my Writers Club who also illustrates her stories. I am still a beginner having only been painting since Oct 2010. I will have my first illustrated books coming out this fall “The Happy Pumpkin, Patch” and “Twas The Mouse Before Christmas” 2013. which will be available on amazon.com

Working on multi-media in Hawaii presently to put together bedtime story-telling with original music in audiobooks to go with the books and at this original artwork. Very creative and rewarding. I love going to schools all over the country and reading for schools and libraies.

My stuffed Christmas mouse Harold has been coming to my presentations lately and the children really enjoy getting to know him and seeing the illustrations about him in the Christmas book. I have even recieved letters from children asking how Harold is doing. Well he is doing great and still holding up even after many hands have touched and hugged him… he loves taking pictures with the children and he loves listening to anyone who is reading. He likes to bake cookies for Santa first and formost, but he also really loves listening to bedtime stories. Which means the stuff mouse Harold will most likely be made available by Christmas as well. Some of you may want the whole Christmas package.
