Glen Huser Author / Illustrator / Speaker http://www.glenhuser.com
About MeIf there is anything better than a life immersed in literature, I’m not sure what it is. My early love of reading and drawing led me to pursue a career as a teacher-librarian, artist, and an author of books for readers of all ages. In Edmonton I developed a magazine (“Magpie”) of children’s writing and illustrations and was writer-in-residence at a number of the city’s schools. Winning a Governor-General’s Award for my young adult novel Stitches opened many doors. I have lived in Vancouver since 2004 where I’ve continued to visit schools, conduct workshops, and create books for children and young adults. Recently I have been writing the text and lyrics for a series of picture books (packaged with a CD featuring a massed chorus of 200 Montreal schoolchildren) retelling familiar Greek myths.

Karen Hibbard Illustrator / Speaker http://www.karenhibbard.ca
About MeI am an illustrator and visual artist based in Victoria, BC. with broad experience teaching art. Currently, I am teaching at ECUAD and University of Victoria. And I have done lots of workshops for children.

As a freelance illustrator, I have worked on children’s picture books, juvenile fiction, YA fiction and non-fiction, poetry, video-poetry as well as educational books. As a contemporary artist, I have exhibited nationally and internationally.

I began a relationship with publisher Planète rebelle when I illustrated "Ti-Pinge” by author Joujou Turenne. Since then we have completed 2 other books together.

Most recently, I completed a picture book for Portage & Main Press, "NiMoshom and his Bus" by Penny M. Thomas which is based on her grandfather's life, a school bus driver. He made the school bus ride enjoyable for his charges through story-telling. Also, the book teaches a selection of Cree words and expressions.

Happily, I collaborated with many illustrators on “To This Day”, a poem by Shane Koyczan, for Annick Press. Principally, it carries an anti-bullying message for young readers.

Some other illustrating projects for children and teenagers respectively are ARC Poetry’s issue that featured poetry for children as well as activity books for the Musée d’Orsay, published by Les Éditions Mango.

I am available for art workshops and artist/illustrator talks. Please contact by email- hibbardkaren@gmail.com. Fees are in accordance with CWILL’s presentation fee guidelines.

About MeI am an illustrator and author who was once a full-time animator. The process of bringing characters to life and telling stories from a visual point of view has been of interest to me since I was very young.

In addition to illustrating, writing and animating, I have also done quite a bit of post-secondary teaching and I currently mentor at Vancouver Film School. My two kids, my husband and I live in an old house in Vancouver. I love picture books, graphic novels and listening to audio books on family road trips.
