This spring I had the pleasure of illustrating “Happy Papas”, a book written by the award-winning author Kathleen Pelley for the Child Welfare League of America. I am proud to announce that “Happy Papas” recently won a National Parenting Product Award.

Happy Papas picture book is a beautiful read-aloud that celebrates the wonder of fatherhood, exploring how both animal and human fathers shelter, nurture, and interact with their little ones. From ocean to sky and savanna to jungle, Happy Papas speaks to the universal joys of fatherly love.

Above you can see some of my favourite spreads from the book, and you can also watch the time-lapse of me painting the Little Tiger.

Testimonial
Mariya has the exceptional ability to make fantasy more vivid and vibrant. I love the subtle texture and the outrageous detail and realism, as well as the simplicity of it. _________ The illustrations in Little Moss, Big Tree are outstanding. Light pastel watercolors fill the page and invite the reader to escape and all the trees, snail, animals, and leaves are illustrated accurately with soft hues of color. __________ You taught me what was possible and expected when working with other artists.You were so patient with me while working through an unfamiliar etiquette. It was a real kindness.
