ABOUT BARBARA HERKERT

  • I have a MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Hamline University.  I studied art and art history at Oregon State University.  I’ve taught art appreciation in area grade schools.  I live on the Oregon Coast with my family, and spend creative time in a log house in Central Oregon.

ARTIST STATEMENT

  • My passion is picture book biographies. I adore the entire process–searching for those gems that will appeal to children, following someone you ultimately fall in love with, and finding just the right words and rhythm to paint that person’s amazing life.
