Biographical Sketch

Deborah Ray, born late August of 1940, mingles with the greats in the world of illustration. Artist by training and trade, Ray spent almost a decade in the art academia world of Pennsylvania. Her work transcends the state's borders, though, teaming up with Robert Welber for a series of children's literature. Ray writes, "My basic aim is to create a good art for children in books--that children respond to the nuance and look beyond what many adults miss". Her first book was published in 1969 and henceforth created a celebrated reputation, with a list of awards, honors and dignified memberships.
