Biographical Sketch

Pierr Morgan was born May 2, 1952 in Seattle, Washington. She attended the University of Washington from 1970 to 1973, followed by a time at the Art Center College of Design where she received her B.F.A. This painted the way for her to be primarily a freelance illustrator while speaking at public schools, libraries, colleges, museums and conferences all throughout the United States. Recipient of the American Booksellers Association " Pick of the Lists " , Morgan has illustrated over 13 pieces of children's literature, concentrating her talent to picture books and adapted folktales. It was early on when Morgan fell in love with books and the entrancing signals they sent out to their readers through the artwork amongst the words. She published her first book in 1975 but it wasn't until the late eighties when she became a regular fixture in the genre of children's literature, illustrating mainly for other authors.
