I'm Katie Roth Wools and I have an enduring love of children's books. Whether it is buying, reading, studying or making them they are quite simply my favorite things. Often when I meet someone, the first thing I decide is what animal I would I draw them as. I feel that a day is incomplete unless I have created something. I am illustrator and marketing professional with a background that includes painting, illustration, printmaking, graphic design and sculpture as well as marketing and communications. I also have a drive for crafting of all sorts (did I mention that I am driven by creating things?). With a traditional fine arts education and experience in the marketing/communications field, I have been fortunate to continue my creative outlets while developing a firm understanding of timelines, budgets, branding and promotion.

My favorite book quote:

Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them.
