Inside the Book

The story comes to life with hand-painted, watercolor illustrations that reflect the beauty of the region


Loowit’s Legend is accentuated by the dynamic watercolor illustrations of Diana Thewlis, whose unique style is characterized by realistic subjects, meaningful detail, and a soft approach to color. 


Diana's self-described "playful realism" helps enhance an already-classic Pacific Northwest tale, and her fondness for children's illustration and the love the Pacific Northwest are evident in each page turn.


"Diana Thewlis’ illustrations are stunning. Her pastel color palate evokes the beauty of the natural wonder that is the Columbia River Gorge."
