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 with Rhino & Dino in: Juice! and Rhino & Dino in: Lemonade! being my first two published as an author/illustrator! I am currently working on the third through fifth Rhino & Dino books, have four other completed books that I'm trying to get representation for by an agent or a publisher and many more books that are in the works! (Email me if this is you!) 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 week!

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!

-Erin
