I’m Annelouise, a children’s book author-illustrator based in Southern California. Please have a look around.

Thanks for your visit.

Happy New Year!

Wishing you a year of new beginnings filled with joy, music, and friendships that fill your heart with warmth! 

This is usually just a place for sketches..but I need to say thank you.

Thank you everyone who has supported and encouraged me to share my art. It's a big brave journey for me and I couldn't do it without my patient husband and our beautiful girls who see me facing fears daily, my sister who guides me and picks me up more times than I can count, and the love from my brother and mother. Thank you friends for sharing my journey on my Woodland Abbey FB page. I am very thankful for you. 

I encourage you all to join me in following your heart. Do the thing you most want to do. Reach for that goal, wish, or dream and hold onto it in 2016!!
