Colouring Outside the Lines

You may have known that Spark Your Imagination is mom-made-in-BC.

But, did you also know that the illustrations featured in the SUPER Story Starters and Story Starters DRAW were created by BC moms too?

These talented BC mom-illustrators worked on Spark at the crack of dawn and during nap times.  And we are so thankful for their fun contributions to the games!

Alissa Staples

Alissa Staples is an illustrator and mother of two girls, Sophie (4) and Abigail (10 months).  She has loved drawing since she could hold a crayon, so now loves creating pictures that inspire kids to do the same.  Besides illustrating, she also loves to run, crochet, and make cute bento lunches for her kids. Alissa, her husband Ben and their two girls live in North Vancouver, BC.
Alissa loves playing Story Starters with her family and delights in finding the Spark products on display at local stores.  She is so proud to watch Spark grow!


Suzy Beattie
Suzy Beattie is an artist and an illustrator and the mother of Bella (5).  She has been creating art since she could hold a pencil. “It’s my most favourite thing to do.  When I was 3, I drew fishes all over the oceans in my Dad’s world atlas. Thankfully, my parents let me off easy and began gifting me art supplies as often as possible (thank you).”

She moved to BC from Glasgow in 2003 and is now making the adjustment to good old-fashioned country living at Paul Lake (just outside Kamloops) with her husband Jason and their daughter.
Suzy enjoyed working on Spark Your Imagination games because the focus is on freedom of imagination.
