Local artist illustrates book

in

Local artists Loretta Owens teamed with long-time friend Gwendolyn Reasoner to illustrate a new children’s book.
“Gwen had a dream about this book,” Owens said. “God had came to her and told her she was to write a children’s book and told her to be patient.”
Reasoner and Owens first met in New Jersey, even though both were from Louisiana.
