A Brand New Book!!

Be Nice to the Weather Guy, by Josh Judge is going to make your reading time much more fun!
His New England Christmas Story is ready for pre order and Josh will be appearing throughout New England to sign his books.  You can also order a signed copy directly from the website,

As the illustrator it was so much fun to work with Josh and his wife Diane. They are both full of fun and so is Josh's book.  Just when you think you have the weather all figured out.... SURPRISE!

But perhaps one of the best things about this book is that Josh is donating ALL the proceeds of the book to the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth Hitchcock, NH or CHaD as many know it.

This past month I had considered the option of opening an ETSY shop. Because there has been interest in my prints I decided to go ahead and just do it.
The new shop will feature original prints from work I have created as stand alone paintings, or from books I have written and illustrated.

All prints will be mailed in sturdy, flat mailers to prevent curling and tearing.  I will be adding new images from time to time and will also consider custom orders.  You can read a bit more about me and how I work on the site. GINGERNIELSON

My website will link to some of the newer additions on the STORE page.

As an experiment I am also putting together some digital collages and designs I have created. ( little by little)

Take time to visit ETSY and search for many wonderful handmade, original, vintage, and timeless objects and prints from all over.

Update to Website

Some things are working and some are not. But as I try to figure out the problems I will keep at it.

I really want to add the STORE page, but right now the server is not cooperating.  Of course that could mean I need to approach the learning curve differently.

Fly Butterfly by Brian Halla is the true story of the newest adventure of the twins, Gabe and Abby.
Their story involves the friendship with a caterpillar and the days that follow.  As they search for their friend, "Buster" they witness the changes that take place in the life cycle of a Black Swallowtail.
A dangerous situation for the newly emerged butterfly involves a timely rescue and successful release.

The book will be released through and other outlets as well as in your independent bookstore. The ISBN  978-0-692-78023-7 or the title will be enough for your bookseller to find the book.
