I was not really expecting much, but those are excellent illustrations for a child of that age. Good proportion, even, which is the hardest thing for kids especially to get right. Good for her!

She was on ABC news last week. Walking on the beach she picked up a oil covered feather and burst into tears.

Good for her.

she's very talented, this is really sweet and what an awesome way to raise some direly needed money for the birds.

Oh, wow! Her mom was (and still is) an English teacher at my high school. Ms. Bouler was an uncommonly creative and inspiring teacher. It doesn't surprise me that she has such a talented and passionate daughter. Go, Olivia!
