Gretchen has worked for 40+ years as a professional illustrator, graphic designer and web site designer. Her work began back in the "old" days before fax machines, computers, and believe it or not -- email! Now, she works easily with both traditional drawing methods as well as the latest graphic technology tools, combining and manipulating them to make her unique art. Rebelle is her absolute favorite!!
After graduating from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, she began her career creating illustrations for such diverse fields as early childhood development, real estate advertising, and healthcare / medical illustration. Then she finally found her true passion: creating artwork for children, including picture books. Now she happily opens up her imagination to fly and take her where it will. She hasn't landed yet.
