UP is honoured to feature the artwork of Mae Greyfrost of RootleTootle: The Art of Mae Greyfrost in our attendee delegate bags this Fall, thanks to the support of Moth and Moon Fibreworks.

We can’t wait for you to see the beautiful illustrations that have been created for the Conference. We hope Mae’s beautiful pages help keep our smaller attendees (and adults) busy during speaking sessions. (Boxed crayons will be provided too).

– RootleTootle: The Art of Mae Greyfrost –

I am an Autistic artist and Mama to one beautiful 2 year old.
My illustrations happen mostly when the little one sleeps, and feature Family and Nurturing images. Breastfeeding, babywearing, co-sleeping and family portraits are some of my favourite things to paint, aside from mermaids and other fantastic creatures!
If you’d like to see more and keep up to date with all of my art, please feel free to like my facebook page:

Lots of love and mermagic!
