With playful watercolor illustrations and rhyming text, Grandpa’s Garage follows in the footsteps of Amber’s first book, H is for Home: A Saskatchewan Alphabet. Although perfectly suited for the young people in your life, this book is an invitation to spark stories and anecdotes between generations. Grandpa’s Garage is “a place where things are kept and repaired. And most importantly, it’s a place where memories are shared.” The illustrations are done in Amber’s signature watercolour/ink style set on a natural paper.
The author and illustrator, Amber Antymniuk was born and raised on an acreage outside Tisdale, in northeastern Saskatchewan. Amber holds a Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Regina, where she specialized in Arts Education, with a major in visual arts and a minor in English. She also holds a Fine Arts degree from the same university.
