Biographical Sketch

Nancy Carlson was born October 10, 1953 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She attended the University of Minnesota at Duluth from 1972-1973, the Santa Fe Workshop of Contemporary Art in 1975, and received a B.F.A. in 1976 from Minneapolis College of Art and Design, and began her career as an artist and illustrator. In the 1980s, Ms. Carlson began illustrating other children's authors' works and writing her own picture books. Working in a variety of media, she became well-known for her series featuring the animal characters Harriet, Loudmouth George, and Louanne Pig. Drawing on her own childhood experiences and family and friends, Nancy Carlson uses her anthropomorphic animals to tell simple stories that impart an easily understood moral message such as the importance of sharing and how to be brave in the face of bullying or stage fright. She uses her characters to express human emotions, experiences, and dilemmas that small children can readily relate to and appreciate. Her drawings are also simple yet convey the characters' emotions and experiences, and a puckish sense of humor that young readers enjoy.
