The Butterfly Books team are passionate, committed and experienced. Allow us to introduce them to you.
Born in Birmingham, UK, Kerrine is also an award-winning electrical engineer. She currently lives in New York, USA with her husband, 2 daughters and pet fish.
"I have a passion for inspiring the young, introducing them to the career options available to them and ensuring diversity in all fields of work."
Jason works in finance and is a keen writer. Also born in Birmingham, he now lives in Surrey, UK.
"Having 2 daughters, I'm concerned that children are not exposed to the range of opportunities available to them early enough in life. I hope that the books will not only educate, but also inspire and entertain."
Based in London, UK, Marissa's illustrations and artwork can be described as energetic and playful.
"Working on these books makes my soul sing! I learn a lot on every journey with them and the Butterfly Books team are amazing to work with! It's rewarding to know that my artwork is helping to make a positive change in society"
