Illustrator Gallery - Beverly Warren
I am a resident of Washington state where I live with my husband. Ever since I was old enough to hold a pencil (or crayon) I have been drawing. Art has been a major part of my life. I am a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC. Shortly after I graduated I got married and began a family, but I also worked as a free-lance artist and taught art to children, grades K-8. Due to the need to expand my children’s education our house became filled with piles of library books. It was these books that sparked an interest in me to consider illustrating for children’s literature, which I later did, mostly in the educational market. As time has traveled its course my passion for art combined with the written word has not diminished, but rather the passion for art has spilled over and into a passion for writing. For me the story is the foundation or heart of the book that the illustrations must be built upon.
