Stewart St. John Light Media/Publishing, a rising star in the children and family publishing and multimedia market creating innovative content across all platforms, announced today it is collaborating with world-renowned illustrator Joan Perrin-Falquet to create new products for the company. Perrin-Falquet, whose work with Hay House Publishing has appeared in Louise L. Hay's best-selling book You Can Heal Your Life as well as calendars, cards, gift bags, note pads and other products, will now provide exclusive designs for Stewart St. John Light.

"Joan is one of the most talented, divinely inspired artists I've ever worked with," said Stewart St. John, co-founder and CEO of Stewart St. John Light Media Publishing. "Todd and I are thrilled to welcome this exciting, leading-edge visionary to the company as we continue to build a brand that is synonymous with the things we all believe in: living your best life, doing your best work, and respecting the spirit within." St. John added, "We are the next-generation company reaching for a higher consciousness in everything we create, targeting family-friendly projects for everyone to enjoy, and having Joan as part of the team helps solidify that vision."

“Stewart St. John and Todd Fisher are truly gifted creative visionaries," said Joan Perrin-Falquet. “It is a real joy and honor to be working with them. Everything they touch has such quality and integrity created in an environment of kindness. It is exciting and inspiring to be part of a team that will offer people so much."

Todd Fisher, co-founder of Stewart St. John Light, is delighted Joan has come on board during the expansion phase of the boutique media publishing company. "She's a superstar and the timing feels right as we take the company to the next level."

St. John and Fisher have long been pioneers of cross-platform entertainment since the early days of the internet when St. John was executive producer of the groundbreaking websoap The Spot. They were the first to introduce cross-platform storytelling from mobile to web with The Spot Wireless, a subscription-based mobile series developed for Sprint and narratively running from cell phone to broadband. "We produced thousands of videos for both web and mobile," said Fisher, "and even incorporated our fans into storylines with live events around the country."

St. John's work in traditional media began as a writer for the hit children's television series Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and ABC Television's Sabrina: The Animated Series, and the Disney Channel original film Seventeen Again. As a composer he worked closely with NY Times best-selling authors Jerry & Esther Hicks on their series of Hay House published children's books and adaptation of the novels for the big screen.

Perrin-Falquet, who designed the cover of St. John's instrumental album Cloudwalking, has been steadily working as a leading illustrator in the self-help publishing world for over a decade. Hay House founder Louise Hay chose Perrin-Falquet's beautiful artwork to breathe new life into her best-selling book, You Can Heal Your Life. "Joan Perrin-Falquet's art work is enchanting and heart warming," says Hay. "She is such a creative and original artist."

Stewart St. John Light will also begin selling originals and prints of Perrin-Falquet's work which has never before been available to the public. The web site, will also showcase St. John and Perrin-Falquet's first children's book, Snookery And The Great Glowing Acorn, available this fall.

"It's just the beginning," teased Fisher. "We've got so many wonderful things going on... it's going to be a very exciting next few years."
