Kent Culotta comes from a small town in Michigan, where he grew up with his parents, his brother, Mark, and his dog, Whiskers. Kent has always loved to draw. When he was five he covered an entire wall of his parents’ living room with his own gallery, each drawing taped lovingly in place. His parents were overjoyed. No blank piece of paper, used envelope, or post-it note is safe from his pencil.
Kent has worked as an artist in newspapers and on film, including several years in the animation industry. Films he has worked on include The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Prince of Egypt, and Mary Poppins Returns.His first dream was to be a book illustrator and he’s happily making that dream come true.
