A Little Bit about Me
Sunny is an illustrator and designer of children’s books, mother of four kids and keeper of two cats. She has always loved to draw and has always had her own collection of picture books.
She grew up in the woods of Northern Michigan along the shores of Lake Superior with her mother the illustrator and her grandmother the writer. She is a US ARMY vet and former paratrooper. Thanks to the military her family lived in Germany for 13 years. Where they grew to love the food, fests, castles and culture. Also thanks to the military and the GI Bill Sunny got her bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from the Art institute of Pittsburgh.
Sunny currently lives in Maryland where blue crabs are plentiful and everything seems to have Old Bay seasoning on it. She spends her days doodling on her ipad with a cup of cold coffee by her side and a cat on her lap. Creating fun and quirky characters for picture books and middle grade. She is an active member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
She is also the co-host of the Illo Chat podcast. A place where her friend and fellow author/illustrator Olga Herrera, talk about their journey as children’s book illustrators.
For Children’s book illustration Sunny is currently represented by Lynnette Novak at the Seymour Agency.
