ABOUT GAEL ABARY
Gael Abary is an illustrator living in Hawai’i with her partner, their daughter, a cat called Stella, and a retired racing greyhound called Storm.
She started working as an illustrator many years ago in the fashion industry while studying metalsmithing at Parsons School of Design in NYC. Later she worked as a production director for a jewelry company before moving to Woodstock, NY where her daughter was born. Over the years of reading with her little one every night and spending days at the Free Library of Philadelphia, she developed a passion for picture books. Crow Spirit, written by Debra Bartsch, is her debut as a children’s book illustrator.
