|Kristen Nobles, art director at Candlewick Press.|
Kristen Nobles joined Candlewick Press as Art Director in 2004. As an art director, she has worked with award-winning illustrators Leslie Patricelli, Sophie Blackall, Yuyi Morales, John Rocco, Matt Myers, Ed Young, and Carson Ellis. Kristen loves a strong character, a unique style or retro look made new again, and looks for a new spin on traditional themes in children’s books. Before returning to the East Coast, Kristen was a senior designer at Chronicle Books in San Francisco. Her passion for children's books has been passed down from her mother, an elementary school teacher, and her grandmother, a librarian.
