Meet the Artist #12

As part of the hoopla around our second-ever public exhibition of illustrations by SCBWI WWA artists, Update will post a mini-profile of each*—in completely random order—between now and the exhibit's closure in early January. Read about 'em here, or check them ALL out online here, or go see their work in person at the Washington State Convention Center! You can even shake their hands on Dec. 12 at our Holiday Gathering! (More info and registration here.)

Why did you choose to submit your particular piece of art?
This is one of my favorite images from the book it belongs to––an unexpected piece, it suggested itself as a prequel to the story inside.

What does being part of SCBWI mean to you?
Wonderful support, great information, networking and––above all––inspiration.

What is your favorite picture book from childhood?
Richard Scarry's Busy, Busy World (1965). I wore it out, and my mom had it re-bound. Now, dog-eared and drooled on, it's been re-bound again for my preschooler.

Fun fact: Karen tends 40,000 honeybees, among other critters and family members. Learn more, and see more images, on STQRY here.

*excluding only those lazy bones or privacy freaks who don't answer our email questions, of course. We love them anyway.
