Annie Patterson has been an artist as long as she can remember. Early memories include sitting on her bedroom floor drawing bears in dresses from Richard Scarry's books, and climbing a tree in the backyard where she would perch and draw scenes of farm houses influenced by Charlotte's Web. Annie went on to study Visual Communication at the Art Institute of Seattle. She now lives at northernmost point of Alaska, in a home on the tundra filled to the brim with children's books. Annie's neighbors include polar bears, snowy owls, arctic fox, and many types of birds in the summertime. Now the mother of two young children, Annie loves watching them discover the joy of creating art.
