Illustrator Gallery - Loni Edwards
Hello, welcome to my profile on SCBWI!
My love for the animal kingdom is apparent throughout my art. Giving animals human personalities full of humor and emotion is a staple in my work. I like to work with bright colors, coloring my pencil art digitally in Photoshop.
I have illustrated three poems for author Jennifer Poulter that were published on the Sharing-Books site. I was honored to contribute to the ‘Smile’ project which is a collection of autographs & illustrations that are exhibited in children’s hospitals throughout Poland. In April, 2010, my piece was part of an exhibit that was seen in Cairo, Egypt.
I have participated in a number of non-profit charity events including, Heroes4Haiti, Art for Japan, The Ripple Project, and Comics for Cures.
Most recently I have published numerous pieces for clients, including creating the badge for the popular children’s book list,created by author Susanna Leonard Hill, Perfect Picture Book Fridays. I have also created the email header for Susanna’s Children’s Book writing course, “Making Picture Book Magic” (http://www.susannahill.com/MAKING_PICTURE_BOOK_MAGIC.html).
I have recently moved to Amherst, MA and am looking forward to meeting fellow authors and illustrators, art directors, and editors in New England.
