Kathi Ember lives with one man, three sheep and four cats in an old stone farm house just outside of Kutztown, PA. She has been drawing since she could hold a pencil and knew from an early age that art was her passion. After graduating with a BFA from Kutztown University in '76, she eventually figured out that she was meant to be an illustrator. Her love of animals, sense of humor, whimsy, and a penchant for storytelling all came together and in one quick moment she realized, "THIS IS IT...this is what I'm supposed to be doing". And so, she sits at her desk every day, living in a fantasy world and watching little anthropomorphic animals come to life...and...life is good.|
Below are some of her most recent projects, The Bear Cub Bakers by Caroline Baxter (Big Sunshine Books), A Father's Day Thank You by Janet Nolan (Albert Whitman & Company), Mother's Day Surprise by Stephen Krensky (Two Lions), Squirrel's New Year's Resolution & Substitute Groundhog by Pat Miller (Albert Whitman & Company).
