"What a wonderful experience I have had working with Cayla Samano! She is lovely, talented, open to collaboration, and professional in every way.
Cayla illustrated my first book and she was perfect, kind, caring, understanding of what I liked and receptive to the message I wanted to portray. I can not recommend her highly enough to anyone interested in collaborating with an illustrated on a book, or probably any project."
