Margaretville, NY (PressExposure) September 21, 2009 -- Looking for the latest marketing trend for creative children everywhere? Then look no further than the latest art sensation by children's book author Kimberly Wickham, whose Angels and Horses children's book series has been capturing the imaginations of a new generation of children and young adults who are more interested in magic and faraway worlds than in the consumer-driven label-dropping Gossip Girl or Clique series. The whimsical drawings and paintings of Kimberly Wickham - which combine the best in children's fiction: young girls, horses, and fantasy - depict some of children's best-loved images in new and exciting ways. Thus, in "The Comforting Horse," a horse sits upright to comfort a child in distress, while in "Collage," an abstract pattern vaguely reminiscent of Native American design mixes lifelike painted horses with simple pen-sketched deer. Already available at low costs from Kimberly Wickham's website, her artwork is now available for substantial discounts when ordered in large quantities.
Wickham's interest in and talent for art has been present ever since she was a child. Raised amid the ancient columns and cobblestone streets of Rome, Italy, Wickham developed an eye for color and form, which is evident in much of her artwork. Four degrees (in Art, Art History, Teaching, and Humanities) later, with over twenty years of art teaching experience, Wickham has used her talents in a variety of ways: from creating a stained glass panorama for the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Margaretville, NY to writing a powerful series of children's books that blends imagination and warmth with a philosophical take on the meaning of life.
The Angels and Horses series, which includes Angels and Horses, Summer of Magic Horses,, and Angels, Horses and Other Worldly Lessons, is the story of young Tina, who learns how to look beyond the physical world into other realms of magic and wonder with the help of her guardian angel, Marguerite, and pet horse Dancer. The mystical landscapes Wickham envisions are informed by her philosophy of "The Law of Attraction" - stating that positive thinking can effect positive change on a quantum level.
