About the Author
part of the illustration group Paper Ghost Press. She lives in Atlanta, GA with her husband Mike, two cats, and two awesome kids.
A Natural World board books are natural inside and out, including the way they are made. The author-illustrator explains tackling this printing challenge: “Since the books are printed on a dark all natural cardboard I had to figure out how the colors would behave on this kind of material during the printing process. As much as I loved the material I didn’t know what the print results would look like, but now I have a system to ensure I get the colors I want.”
