Marlboro illustrator Ashley Poulin with original artwork featured in the new children's book Risseldy Rosseldy, based on an old American folk song adapted by John M. Feierabend.
If you were a young art student dreaming of a career writing and illustrating children’s books, what would be the best way to get started? Seems like you couldn’t ask for a more auspicious beginning than winning a competition that results in your first book being published. And that’s exactly what happened to Marlboro resident Ashley Poulin. Still in her early 20s, she is the proud illustrator of Risseldy Rosseldy, just released in February by Chicago-based GIA Publications, Inc. and now available in a bookstore near you.
