Children's Picture Book Illustrator Draws Whimsical Paintings on Wood Panels

Amy Hevron is an artist, author and an illustrator originally from Texas presently based in Seattle, Washington. After finishing BFA in Graphic Design from Texas State University, Amy earned a certificate in Natural Science Illustration from the University of Washington.

She paints whimsical worlds filled with loveable characters inspired by birds, animals and nature. She paints with saturated acrylics on various types of wood panels which gives her work rich texture. "The texture and natural forms of the wood helped with the inspiration and unique quality of each piece.”

She has illustrated for many picture books including Trevor by Jim Averbeck, Moon Babies by Karen Jameson, The Perfect Pet for You! by Estelle Laure and Dust Bunny Wants a Friend authored by herself. She is currently working on illustrations for the upcoming books - The Tide Pool Waits and The Longest Journey: An Arctic Tern’s Migration.
