Illustrator Gallery - Jerry Barrett
I am an author/illustrator living in historic Springfield IL. I grew up on a farm in a very small house with seven brothers and sisters. Drawing and acting out stories became my escape.
My Wide Mouth Frog series of picture books have garnered Next Generation INDIE Book Awards: 2015 Gold Winner, Wide Mouth Frog’s Big Birthday; 2014 Silver Finalist, Wide Mouth Frog Goes on Vacation and the 2013 Silver Finalist, Wide Mouth Frog Goes to the Zoo. All these plus my fourth children’s picture book, Wide Mouth Frog Starts Kindergarten are self-published through my own imprint, SunnyCrest Press, and are available online through Amazon.com.
I have also been the illustrator for various animated educational websites. including: Riding the Winds with Kalani, and Fresh From the World…Where Your Food Comes From.
