Designing Fairy

My name is Ronni Rose Swanson and I am a Designing Fairy. It is believed I am part or mostly fairy (don’t tell) stuck in a human body, but I’ve said too much about that.

I am partial to tutus and dancing, anything dogs, and I have seen every episode of Project Runway and I have a fairy tent. I live in a treehouse with a talking dog, an angel basset who visits often, my supportive elf husband, and three creative fairy step-children who give me ideas.  I love to design things that help other people. The Idea Emporium Book and Cinema embodies everything I love to offer the world and I’ve been its privileged store manager for only the past year when I discovered it on a side street hidden behind a huge pine tree.

I bring a rich artistic background to help birth this book into the world. I love to teach through fun methods because I believe we learn the most when we engage in play (read about my Rubber Ducky Theory). My training and experience includes over two decades of teaching art to both college-age adults and elementary school children; the creator of my own online international school of ten years, Fairy Online School; degrees in Communication Design and Fine Art; and Graduate certification in Education Technology and Design. Of note, I’m a published illustrator of activity books, Cooking Art (Gryphon House), Word Swirls (Element Children’s Books), and my own Healing Fairy Alphabet Deck and Comfort Cards for Transitions. I’ve also written the best-selling  Help! I’m Sensitive, and book 2, Your Turtle Shell, about being a sensitive. My career included talking to dogs and cats for fourteen years, and I have an uncanny ability to see other fairies, so my world is already filled with magic and whimsy.
