Our Children’s Books

With 12 years of teaching ocean science in the K-12 classroom and coastal science center, we believe learning should be an adventure: full of fun, curiosity, and wonder!

Our heartfelt mission is to connect others with the ocean, uplift with positive vibes, educate, and inspire wonder & conservation for the ocean & marine life.

Together, we lovingly hand-draw and hand-paint the ocean and its animals in every color of the rainbow. Here’s a sneak peek into our art studio:

“Everett” Taylor is our pen name, after our grandpop who was an inspiration to both of us.
