Fairbanks-born author and illustrator Tavia Florens-Bolton introduces her state through sounds, sights, smells, tastes and feels. “My Five Senses Explore Alaska” is her second children’s book and is a sense-sational opportunity to explore natural wonders.
From idea to reality: “I simply just had to make it a priority. I’ve had this goal since I was a kid.”
Finding inspiration: “My son loves creating new character illustrations. He’s waiting for me to write a story with a green moose.”
Final thought: “I believe the success is absolutely connected to this place we live and the support our community gives local artists.”
