About the Artist
Hello! I’m Kerri McDermott, an illustrator, designer, writer, and picture book maker.
My favorite picture books are heartfelt, humorous, and fun to read aloud. The best ones charm with deceiving simplicity, beautiful color palettes, and thoughtful design. I enjoy the solo challenge of the creative process, but I welcome collaboration with other kind humans, especially ones with a good sense of humor.
I’m currently working on my hand-lettering skills and a story about New Orleans jazz. When I’m not at my drawing desk, you can find me planning my next trip, hiking in the Rocky Mountains, or shamelessly eating another award-winning chocolate croissant from the corner bakery.
