Author Spotlight- Marie Letourneau

04 Mar, 2011 by in etsy, postcard giveaway 23 comments

With the release of the book Red Riding Hood by Sarah Blakley-Cartwright, Catherine Hardwick and the movie debut just a week away I started searching the ETSY world for some great Red Riding Hood giveaways. I ran into author and illustrator Marie Letourneau who’s artwork is absolutely dreamy!

Fans of Little Red, like us, will adore her etsy shop Le French Circus “Bonjour Mon Ami! My name is Marie Letourneau, I live in New York and I am a children’s book author and illustrator. My book, “The Mice of Bistrot des Sept Freres” won Foreword Magazine’s Book of The Year Award in 2006 and was featured on an episode of ACE OF CAKES on Food Network. (Yes, Duff and the gang from Charm City Cakes made me a cake based on my book! Tre fun and delicious!) It’s for sale here in my shop (the book – not the cake. We already ate that)
ALSO FROM MY STUDIO:
I would like to introduce my two children, Hannah and Alexander. Both artists and musicians. From time to time they create pieces they would like to sell (I indicate this in the listing) Right now Hannah has listed the Paris Note Cards and Mannequin Print. Overall, I hope you find something exciting that suits your tastes! Enjoy and adieu! “

Marie has donated a pack of her postcards for our readers!

Description: From an original painting by me (Marie) postcards of lovely Miss Riding Hood! Our dear Red makes her way (a little apprehensively) through the forest and over to grandmothers house. 8 glossy, professionally printed post cards with rounded corners. Back of post card has an aged-antique design by me too. Size: Standard 4.5 x 5.5 inches with envelopes
