Loraine Kemp - author, illustrator

Hey! Thanks for dropping by my website. Here you will find information about my writing, and pictures of my illustrations.

The paintings below are from my upcoming book, written by Karen Autio, called Growing Up in Wild Horse Canyon. The book explores Okanagan history by focusing on Wild Horse Canyon in Okanagan Mountain Provincial Park (south of Kelowna, BC) and its vicinity. This advanced picture book includes natural and social history. A young Okanagan man on a vision quest … horses wild and tamed … fur brigades … secret Second World War commando training: all are linked to the canyon and area. It will be a great read for young and old alike! The book will be published October 15, 2018 by Crwth Press. The book launch will be in the downtown Kelowna library on October 20, 2018 from 2:00-4:00 pm. The book launch tour will begin November 7, 2018.

To see other books I have illustrated, refer to the BOOKS Section.

Feel free to browse around. I hope my writing and illustrations inspire you.
