Biographical Sketch

Trina Schart Hyman was born April 8, 1939 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She studied art at the Philadelphia Museum College of Art and the Boston Museum School of the Arts during the 1950s and at the Konstfackskolan [Swedish State Art School] in 1960-1961. Throughout her long and prolific career, Trina Schart Hyman has worked as an artist and illustrator, and art director at Cricket Magazine. She illustrated her first book Toffe Och Den Lilla Bilen by Hertha Von Gebhardt, in 1961. Trina Schart Hyman has also written and illustrated several books, beginning with How Six Found Christmas in 1969. She has illustrated books for many authors and is best known for her illustrations for fairy and folk tales, including Snow White (1974) and Sleeping Beauty (1977), the latter also retold by Trina Schart Hyman. Critics have praised her as a "gifted creator" of images whose pictures "emphasize the story" and offer a "wealth of information." Her illustrations are an "expressive blending of realism, fantasy, and humor" that have "rich colors" and "capture the mood" of the story in a "pictorial narrative." Critics have especially noted how the "faces of characters are beautifully realized." Trina Schart Hyman has received many awards for her work including the Caldecott Award in 1985 for Saint George and the Dragon and the Caldecott Honor citations for Little Red Riding Hood in 1984 and Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins in 1990.
