Dear Librarians,

Telling stories has always been important to me and diversity is an important aspect of my work, not just in style or in my choice of projects, but certainly in the subject matter as well.

When I was offered the opportunity to work on PRINCESS NINA, I was excited to illustrate this different take on princesses as I feel it's important to start treating the subject of love and acceptance with any partner as something normal at a young age.
