Illustrator Gallery - Ruth Sanderson
I have illustrated over 80 books for children and am perhaps best known for my fairy tale retellings such as THE TWELVE DANCING PRINCESSES, THE SNOW PRINCESS, PAPA GATTO, and CINDERELLA. All my fairy tales are back in print with Crocodile Books, a division of Interlink Publishing. Since 2009 I have been illustrating HORSE DIARIES, an ongoing chapter book series for Random House. THE GOLDEN KEY is a Victorian fairytale by George MacDonald that I illustrated with 47 scratchboard drawings.
I teach writing and illustrating in the 4-5 summer MFA in Children’s Book Writing and Illustrating at Hollins University in Roanoke, VA and live the rest of the year in Massachusetts.
