About the Author
When beginning research on a particular artist, I try to visit museums and public spaces where their art is displayed. Researching their lives, their work, and their views of the world inspires me to share their art and knowledge with young readers." Author Joan Schoettler grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she became acquainted with Ruth Asawa's wire sculptures and fountains. Schoettler earned a MA in reading and language arts from Fresno Pacific University. She is a member of the Society for Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and the 2013 recipient of an APALA Award for Best Picture Book. She lives with her husband in California.
Traci Van Wagoner holds degrees in illustration from Utah State University and in toy design from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. A longtime member of SCBWI, Van Wagoner has illustrated many children's books, and her work appears in magazines, newsletters, and on toys and games. When not painting, she is designing and developing games with her husband at Imagine That! Design. Her motto is live, laugh, and learn.
