About the author (2011)

Living in the Midwest taught me nature is filled with many precious gifts. The forests are filled with endless natural materials. Hiking enabled me to listen to the wind whistling through the trees, birds singing their sweets songs and insects humming around searching for food. Suddenly realizing nature not only provides us with so many wondrous gifts, it teaches us the importance of living in harmony with nature. Where do animals and insect live through each season? While searching for answers, the idea of writing and illustrating children's books evolved and later became a reality. Come and walk with me and Tiny Wings evolved and all illustration were painted to depict each character realistically.

Poetry is painting scenery with words. Strive to love, Anticipate with hope, Believe in faith is a journey back to virtues through poetry and stories defining each virtue.


Our neighbor was a beekeeper and encouraged me to make beeswax candles. Quickly I became hooked with candle making; decided to document each project.

Art is your expression of what is beautiful.

Many Blessings, Catherine Basten
