Original watercolor and gouache, along with some ink and pencil children's illustrations of Christine Mix, will be on view for her Holiday Solo Exhibit at the South Londonderry Free Library, in South Londonderry to January 16.
Mix's watercolor and ink wash illustrations have appeared in the children's cook book, Write Out of the Oven! by Josephine Waltz, published by Teacher Ideas Press/Greenwood Publishing, in 2005. Write Out of the Oven! personally connects children in grades 5-8 with their favorite literary heroes.
A collection of letters and recipes from more than 50 well-known and award-winning children's authors. Write Out of the Oven! received a nice review from the Parents Choice Foundation Bon Appetite Reading List.
Mix is also the author of, Standing Up, a non-fiction short true story, that was published, in Chicken Soup for the Child's Soul, Character-Building Stories to Read with Kids Ages 5-8, May 2007.
She sold six b/w spot illustrations to SCBWI's Bulletin, between 2005 and 2009 and has recently finished her first children's picture book dummy, Spike and the Wee Sea Folk.
