Introducing 'Strawberries & Sweetgrass'

The cover art & design for Strawberries & Sweetgrass, a First Nations middle grade novel by Nadine Labelle, is ready for show. 

This cover challenged my abilities with this medium in so many ways. Lighting, hair, wind, reflections, gesture, you name it. I learned so much!

Nine-year-old Bayley D’Amour couldn’t think of anyone she’d rather spend more time with than her grandmother. Gokomis with her twinkling eyes and long white hair was her best friend. The only other friends she had were Gokomis’ two horses, Aankwat and Odeh.

When school started, everything changed and Bayley was left without her best friend, with two missing horses, and decisions to make as she stood under a spirit tree. Where did the horses go? How could she bring them home? Who could help her? What would she wish for if she could choose to be almost anything?

Nadine Labelle lives in Massey, Ontario and is an Ojibwe, mother of two from Serpent River First Nation.

I'll be maintaining a page on my website with info on this book. When it's ready for orders, I'll  let ya'll know. :D
