Children's Author and Illustrator: Jane Stroschin

Jane Stroschin
Today I want you to meet Jane Stroschin, a talented artist and storyteller. She had a big week this week because the mural she painted for the wall of a two story building was installed and a reception celebrated this magnificent work, entitled Celebrate Our Symbols. The mural, located in Fremont, Michigan, depicts wildlife and nature in Michigan.

This is a mock-up of the mural, not an actual photo of the final art work.
Jane shared with me some of the photos as she worked on the project in her studio. I am in awe of her vision and talent. The next photo is the image of the birds she painted when starting the panel located at the top of the mural. From this:

Jane created this gorgeous painting. 

The panel of this background lying on its side in her studio developed into the next breathtaking beauty,

To learn more about Jane Stroschin and how she became a celebrated artist and children's author, read her story in the interactive e-book, Girls Succeed: Stories Behind the Careers of Successful Women. The e-book is available for download at Smashwords, Amazon, and major online booksellers.

  2. Thanks Susanne. Her children's books are so cute too and the illustrations are works of art. She has sold her work all around the US. Very talented.
