Champ - The little plesiosaur is a children’s book that tells the story of Champ, the sea creature who lives in Lake Champlain.

The story begins with a young Champ finding himself alone and then his adventures along the Adirondack coast as he matures.

The book is a combination of photos that I’ve taken and watercolors I created and merged to show a visual representation of our beloved Champ. Although the book reflects endless hours of work, I loved combining two passions, photography and watercolors.

The story is based on stories I heard growing up, documented history and of course, a dollop of folk lore.

I hope that you enjoy this endearing story of Champ and the art that I created to make our favorite lake creature come to life.
