learn more about Volume One's cover art from Marie Meuleners

“A Burst of Color” by Ann Marie Meuleners
watercolor and ink, 8” x 10”, 2012

Ann Marie Meuleners is an artist, teacher and just recently a children’s book author/illustrator of A Gift for You.

“A Burst of Color” 2012 is a watercolor and ink portrayal of a poppy with simple, limited brushstrokes. This image was one of three that were purchased by Strathmore for cover art on their card stock papers. More detailed florals and landscapes can be found at the artist’s website. She also exhibits some of her work at Tangled up in Hue and will do work on commission. A video trailer of her book is on YouTube, with a portion of proceeds going to a children’s hospital.  

Volume One finds its cover art in a number of ways, from local art shows to random emails to knowing someone who knows someone who knows a great artist. The art always originates from a current or former Chippewa Valley resident. If you'd like to submit cover art, send us a message.
