Illustrator Lisa Hall’s inspiration for Baby Ventures books comes from her own adventures living and traveling across six continents. One experience in particular has deeply influenced her artistic style: her 2005 trip to India.
“It is said that India is a feast for the senses. And it’s true! Nowhere else have I been so overwhelmed by such breath-taking colors. From groups of women in bright saris, to markets overflowing with flowers, I was struck by awe-inspiring color around every corner. Even elephants’ trunks were painted with gorgeous designs! Images of such rich and vibrant colors have greatly influenced my art and help bring the pages of every Baby Ventures book to life.”
