About Us

- James & Luke Jubran, Co-Owners/Authors -

We are brothers who have spent decades together outdoors, enjoying amazing wildlife, wild lands and waters that have helped shape our lives and friendship.  We have a strong belief in education and getting kids engaged in reading and learning about the natural world at an early age, as our parents did with Us.  We now want to do the same for kids all over, while raising money for conservation groups who help empower the legacy of the great outdoors to continue with each new generation.

Our Artists

- Ana Laura Ortiz, Artist -

As far as I can remember, I have always been captivated and in love with nature.  All of nature's boundless sights, sounds, smells, textures and flavors have influenced my life long endeavor of self exploration and self expression as an artist.  I am a current and evolving artist, art educator, and nature-lover that appreciates and enjoys working with a variety of mediums. Through this series of books, I was able to transform the words written by James and Luke Jubran into illustrations that will reach out to children and adults.  By doing so, I hope to bring awareness and appreciation for the natural world that surrounds us.  For more information about my professional and personal works follow the link  to my website.

He has been exploring with a fly rod in hand ever since. His love for fly fishing is pre-dated only by his passion for art as he has been drawing and painting since before he can remember.  www.repyourwater.com
