Andrea TaylorWhy did you choose to submit this art?
I think my "Hopping Lemur" illustration has an unexpected quality about it that captures the viewer's attention. The fresh colors, mix of animals, and unusual composition all make for a pleasing view, or at least I hope so!
What does being part of SCBWI mean to you?
I went to my first SCBWI monthly meeting in the fall of 2011. I was overcome with the genuine warmth and encouragement given to members. It was something I knew I wanted to be a part of.
What is your favorite picture book from childhood?
The Girl Who Loved Wild Horses by Paul Goble. I'm looking at it as I write this. My copy is so worn most of the pages are falling out. I've had it since I was a baby. In fact, it was published the year of my birth. I find everything about the illustrations and story to be inspiring and beautiful.
Fun fact: Andrea studied art in Spain. Learn more, and see more images, on STQRY here.
