Nancy Carlson is an accomplished children's book author & illustrator who has published more than 60 books. She is one of the few people who knew even back in kindergarten what she wanted to do for a living: "Make pictures & tell stories!"
Nancy is a life-long Minnesotan. Born & raised in Edina, Minnesota, Nancy had a happy & fulfilling childhood surrounded by an outgoing family. Her parents read to her and her brother & sister every night. The comic books she loved to read as a child have influenced her style of drawing & use of color. Many of Nancy's stories are taken from her own childhood experiences.
Nancy graduated from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design with a major in printmaking, & shortly afterward became fascinated with children's books while working at Minneapolis's Walker Art Center. Nancy began to write her own stories & created accompanying drawings. It wasn't long before she found herself approaching publishers with her own ideas for children's books. She had numerous art exhibitions before getting into the publishing world & her artwork is held in many private & public collections. Recognition for her published work includes several Reading Rainbow selections, the Children's Choice Award from the International Reading Association & Children's Book Council, the Minnesota Children's Museum Great Friends to Kids Award & several others.
Nancy believes that life should be fun for everyone, but especially for children. This optimistic message permeates her picture books & provides a positive counterpoint to much of what children are influenced by in today's society. Her characters aren't always perfect. They often have fears, anxieties & disabilities. Through her books, kids learn to cope with different challenges. They can learn that they don't have to be perfect to be a good person. Her characters also convey positive messages without being "preachy". They gently remind children what is right.
Nancy is also a guest author & illustrator at over 150 school classrooms each year & has touched the lives of thousands of children across the country.
