Marielena McKay has been with the Come Walk With Me Series since its inception and provides support where needed with those non-glamorous behind the scenes tasks.


Whilst new to Arizona, Marielena discovered Sahuaro Boots, a unique southwestern occurrence, and what she was able to do with them provided me with inspiration for books 1 and 2, both based in Arizona.  Find out more about what Marielena does with these boots not made for walkin' at Quintessentially Wood! ​Click on the following link: 



BEHIND THE SCENES - MARIELENA 

Connor Furr is a Tucson-based artist and a second generation Tucsonan, who has been surrounded by the desert since childhood. Connor was academically trained in Printmaking at the University of Arizona.


Using watercolor and ink allowed Connor the freedom and palette to recreate the desert as Aundi viewed and experienced it.


This is his first book illustration and he is looking forward to working on the upcoming books in the Come Walk With Me Series.
