Astrid Sheckels was born and raised in the farming town of Hatfield, Massachusetts. She cannot remember a time when she wasn't listening to, telling, or illustrating stories. Through her illustrations she gives every story more depth and dimension, and her art is heavily influenced by her Scandinavian roots. The award-winning artist still lives, paints, and teaches in Western Massachusetts.
