Hello there!*waves* I’m Kathryn. It’s so nice to meet you 🙂
My background is in art history but my attention shifted from galleries to picture books after working at the university library where I found myself in the kid lit section far more often than my boss would have preferred. My final year of undergrad I took a college course on children’s literature and knew I had to be a part of the imaginative community. After graduating from college in 2012 I taught art classes to both adults and children. I worked at the art studio until I had my daughter in 2015. In spring of 2016 I made the leap of joining SCBWI. As soon as I joined SCBWI I dove with full force into learning all I could about what it takes to create picture books. When I’m not dancing in the kitchen with my toddler or kissing the chubby cheeks of my baby I am working on my project.
