Carolyn Conahan

Carolyn Conahan writes and illustrates picture books and stories of the fictional variety (The Oregon Reads Aloud project, This Old Van, written by Kim Norman, published by Sterling, 12 Days of Christmas Dogs, Dutton Books, The Big Wish, Chronicle Books), nonfictional (Bubble Homes and Fish Farts, written by Fiona Bayrock, published by Charlesbridge) and some projects that are a little of both… (12 Days of Christmas in Oregon, written by Susan Blackaby, published by Sterling Books). She also writes and illustrates a comic for young readers in her role as staff artist for Cricket Magazine. She lives in Portland, and works in a studio built of recycled parts, in the shade of a tree she brought home in her pocket.
