Jocey’s unique and imaginative illustrations continue to showcase iconic and recognizable mountain landmarks and regions in Western Canada including Takkakaw Falls, Lake Louise, Fernie, Maligne Canyon, Banff and Lake Louise. Rocky Mountain 123s is a playful adventure for everyone to enjoy.
Jocey Asnong was raised by a pack of wild pencil crayons in a house made out of paper and stories. After finishing several years of illustration school at Sheridan College, she left the land of maple trees in Ontario and moved to the mountains of Alberta so she could wear mittens most of the year. When she is not chasing her cats around her art cave in Canmore, she might be caught in a blizzard near Mount Everest, or running away from wolf dogs in Mongolia, or peeking out castle windows in Scotland, or sleeping under the stars in Bolivia.
Jocey’s illustrations can be found in all kinds of unusual places, as well as in the picture books Mushkid, The Princess and the Cheese, Nuptse and Lhotse in Nepal (winner of a Purple Dragonfly Award), Nuptse and Lhotse Go to the Rockies (RMB, 2014), Nuptse and Lhotse Go to Iceland (RMB, 2015), Rocky Mountain ABCs (RMB, 2016), Rocky Mountain 123s (RMB, 2017) and the fourth book featuring her two curious cats, Nuptse and Lhotse Go to the West Coast (RMB, 2018). She lives in Canmore, Alberta, Canada.
