You can still see SCBWI WWA art at the Washington State Convention Center through Jan. 8, or check out the art and artists online here.
Why did you choose to submit this art?
I submitted "The Sunset" because it was one of the most expansive pieces from my book. The colors of the sky are very vibrant, which I thought would work well in the gallery space.
What does being part of SCBWI mean to you?
It means a lot! I joined SCBWI because I had written and illustrated my
first children's book and wanted to learn about next steps for getting
it published. I received my first newsletter, discovered information
about relevant publishers, and within a month got my first book
published! I'm so happy I joined this community.
What is your favorite picture book from childhood?
The Story of Ferdinand by Munro Leaf and Robert Lawson.
