As the words came to their final place, Katie said yes to illustrating the book. The fates brought Alanna & Katie together years ago when Alanna found Katie’s paintings online ~ pieces that matched the emotions and meaning behind the words Alanna had written. “The way she painted was how I had imagined it in my head. I remember the first painting that I saw brought me to tears instantly.”
“I can only say that it was the most enjoyable project I have ever worked on and the way Katie brings ideas and emotion to life with a paintbrush and color makes my heart smile and my spirit shine.”
~ Alanna Knobben
“Creating the paintings for Carry You With Me, following along with the beautiful poetic text, and the whole process of working with Alanna… felt blessed and touched by a magical force. Each step we took together felt perfect and every detail came together as if orchestrated by a kind Universe.”
~ Katie m. Berggren
