From an early age Jody Wheeler developed an interest in picture books, having been influenced by her Great Aunt Opal Wheeler, a renowned author of children’s books in the 1950’s.  Aunt Opal would gift the Wheeler kids every Christmas with the entire children’s book list of her publisher, Dutton Books. 

Jody followed that interest by getting a degree in studio art and art education from Elmira College.  Having graduated in a recession, she ended up working seasonally in resorts in the Adirondacks and Florida.  That migratory lifestyle never changed for Jody once she got into the publishing field. She now migrates between the big city of Manhattan and the small village of Ballston Spa, NY, all the time working in the very portable medium of watercolor.

Jody has illustrated over 60 books as well as textbooks, greeting cards, calendars and licensed characters.
