ABOUT BONNIE KELSO

  • I have been writing and illustrating my own books since I was a kid. I love animals and everything nature. My kids and I dream of finding ways to save the cheetahs from extinction. My illustrations are a way for me to express how beautiful and tragically vulnerable the natural world can be. I continue to believe that there is still hope for all of us, even the cheetahs. Children are the catalysts of a promising future, that’s why I write and illustrate for them. 

ARTIST STATEMENT

  • When I am working out a new idea, I like to work in pencil and watercolor. Then I take my drawings to the digital realm for layering, shading, and color adjustments.
