Love You Head to Toe


Ashley Barron

From her website: “I graduated from OCAD in 2007, and have been working with cut-paper collage ever since. I’ve illustrated several picture books, including the Math in Nature series, Kyle Goes AloneUp! (Owlkids) and Birthdays Around the World (Kids Can Press), with a couple more on the go.

My most recent books include: Love You Head to Toe (Owlkids), My Forest is Green and My Ocean is Blue (Kids Can Press).

In addition to my freelance work, I enjoy teaching art classes and presenting my books to libraries and schools.  

In 2017, I was Toronto Library’s Illustrator in Residence: a program organized by IBBY Canada honouring children’s book illustrator Joanne Fitzgerald.

In 2019, I got the chance to tour Vancouver as part of the CCBC’s TD Children’s Book Week.

I live in Toronto with my partner, Kevin, and our three cats.”
