Born as a true creative, Chelsey Johnston grew up singing, dancing, painting and free spirited. Her love for children and desire to help them navigate the challenges of early childhood, lead her to pursue a diploma in Special Care Counselling, where she worked specifically with children with special needs. Her desire is to equip children with tools so that they feel empowered to verbally express their thoughts, feelings and struggles. Chelsey and her husband Ben, currently reside in Greenfield Park, Quebec, where they raise their two boys Judah and Josiah.

When Melissa was growing up you could always find her with pencil and paper in hand. Melissa has always loved drawing and creating, which led her to graduate from both Acadia University-with a degree in Studio Art, and The University of Calgary- with a degree in Education.
Coming from a Studio Arts background, painting was her first passion, always a curious creative soul, she was pulled toward – and continues to master – digital art and children’s book illustration.
Melissa works wherever she is, with whatever she has on hand, generally under the strict supervision of her very quirky Havanese puppy named Nash.
