Illustrator Gallery - Julie Coyle
Julie grew up on the outskirts of a quaint harbor town in the wet wilds of western Washington. Much of her art reflects her childhood experiences of being raised on a farm and having days filled with catching frogs, chasing wild rabbits and teaching chickens to swim (she extends her apologies to the traumatized chicken). Julie hopes her illustrations and stories capture the playful innocence and whimsy of childhood, as well as inspiring a sense of adventure and curiosity in her readers.
Julie has an MFA in Creative Writing for Children from Spalding University and a Graduate Certificate in Illustrating Children’s Books from Hollins University. She is an active member of SCBWI and Julie Hedlund’s 12 x 12 Picture Book Challenge.
