More About the Author

What reviews are saying:
Animals of the Iquazu by Francisco Alarcon and illustrated by Maya
"The simple words--often playfully integrated into the illustrations as shaped poems--stress the natural balance of the Iguazú... The multimedia illustrations feature lush, glowing paints that depict the animals (including humans) set against a backdrop of cut-paper strips that comprise the rainforest's verdant growth. Stunning." --Kirkus Starred Review
My Colors, My World by Maya
"The exaggerated facial features of both Maya and her feathered friend capture the contentment they find through enjoying the beauty of their world . . . Recommended for public libraries and bookstores." --Criticas Magazine
I Know the River Loves Me by Maya
"The author's love and respect for the natural beauty and rhythm of the river and how it sustains her through quiet and vibrant moods is vividly portrayed in both her words and paintings. . . Inspiring and peacefully thought-provoking." --Kirkus Reviews
Nana's Big Surprise by Amada Irma Perez and illustrated by Maya
"...fantastically engaging... a treasure hunt for found objects... a wonderful book about the love and support of a family. " --ForeWord
Maya currently plays and plays in San Francisco. She wants to share the important lessons she has learned from her only and deeply loved teacher Creativity. In this spirit she has created a small press to share her lessons to support educators, fellow artists and especially children.
She loves to share her 3 rules:
1. Everyone is an artist.
2. There is never a right or a wrong way to make art.
3. Art is always an act of courage.
