Ivan the Terrible Dragon was written for the Author's husband, Ivan, and their son, Ivan Dale. Ivan the Terrible Dragon is a children's book where the illustrations are collaborative watercolor paintings between mother and son. The author first began by painting trees with inspirational messages, making homemade greeting cards, and then she created a personal business on ETSY and Facebook titled, "TreeLadyCards." As the Author continued to paint, Ivan Dale took an interest in painting alongside his mother. The Author began to see images and silhouettes in her sons blotchy designs that he painted. The author took Ivan Dale's painting and created something more detailed out of it; thus began her idea for "collaboration" paintings with her son. Ivan Dale loved when Kristi painted dragons which prompted her the idea to create the children's story, Ivan the Terrible Dragon. While her son inspired the artwork, the authors husband inspired the theme and writing of this children's book.
