About Me

Excited girl character by Erin Kant Barnard

Hi! I'm an author/illustrator that loves drawing... and children's books... and drawing children's books! Always have, always will. I've illustrated over 200 published works found globally.


Although I mostly illustrate, I write too and have five completed books that I'm currently trying to get representation for with many more in the works. With a Bachelor's Degree in Animation I draw quickly and can't keep busy enough! With a Master's Degree in Library & Information Science and librarian background, I study and devour children's books like a fiend. Especially my favorite... picture books!


During this terrible Covid-19 outbreak, my husband and I have online library story times where I am lucky enough to get to read and draw live for families every weekday!

A California native, I moved across country for love and adventure! Currently I reside in a quaint Wisconsin village nestled amid a forest of picturesque pines with my hubbie and rambunctious cats, Rocket and Robyn. Ours is a house that likes to laugh!


Thank you for your time. I would love to hear from you!
