My name is Sasha DeWitt. I'm the illustrator behind Oom Pah Pah. I started drawing at the age of 36 after being widowed with an infant to care for. Working for myself allowed me to work from home and spend time with my daughter. Making art helped me through the grieving process.
As a mother I want my daughter to be inspired by the world around her. As an artist I want to spark imaginations. In order to achieve this I started Oom Pah Pah and as part of that launched Oom Pah Pah's creative 'zine for kids.
