Happy Birthday Sheilah Beckett!

Someone once asked me, "What will you do when you retire from illustration?" I was stumped for an answer. Retire from illustration? I had never thought of it as something one retired from. Why would I ever stop doing something I love so much? If I should be so lucky as too live a long life, I hope I will always feel that way. Today, on her 100th birthday, I am inspired by my friend Sheilah Beckett. Sheilah has been illustrating for a very long time - and continues to do so to this very day.


Please drop by Sheilah's Facebook page and wish her a Happy Birthday. She is truly an inspiration to us all!


  1. Very Happy Centennial to this living treasure...

    I was just thinking of her today, by co-incidence, (but as a longtime inspiration that's not all that unusual...)

    This comes full circle.
    A wonderful illustration for a 100th birthday.
    Creative work knows no age.
