This is my Mom, Leah. She is the author and creative director of The Adventures of Avery Ann series. My Mom is a proud Montana State University alumni, go Bobcats, with a BA in Motion Picture/Films and Video Option. She was born in Missoula, MT, and grew up and lives in Portland, OR. She is a sports fan, soccer devotee, Blazer/Timbers/Thorns believer, child/animal/ocean advocate, outdoor enthusiast, and a music lover. A dream chaser for sure! And she loves, loves, loves me.
My newest illustrator and adventurous friend, Olivia Cole. Olivia drew me to life in The Adventures of Avery Ann: Space.
“Raised in Portland, I’ve been drawing since I could hold a pencil. After finishing my fine arts degree at Portland State, I couldn’t wait to start to pursue one of my dreams-to illustrate children’s books! While I’m not drawing, I’m usually reading, at the gym, or relaxing with my cat.”
