FIONA EPPS is part dolphin, has art in her veins, fought a COVID storm and unearthed a rainbow in an unsuspecting turtle’s voice. Hand painted illustrations and heartwarming lessons are her specialty. Although she is new at publishing, Fiona’s talent has been recognized for decades. At the age of 11 she had her own exhibit in the San Francisco Cartoon Art Museum. Years later, a pandemic allowed her to fully embrace a lifelong passion of storytelling. Now, Fiona brings the aloha spirit and a multicultural spice to children’s picture books, challenging the narrative of tough topics…one bright-eyed reader at a time.
