Courtney discovered her love for drawing by re-creating the characters from her favorite animated movies. It government to Studio Art and never looked back. After graduating with a Studio Art degree she got married, had a baby, and moved to the east coast. Since then, she has honed her style (wacky, vivid watercolor illustrations), taught a few art classes, sold some paintings and had twin boys to keep their sister company. She lives in Alexandria, VA, and this is her first picture book.
