Kyrsten Brooker

I was born in Illinois, and I grew up in western Canada (Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta). I have always loved drawing and painting, but didn’t think I could make a career out of it, so I studied interior design at the University of Manitoba and graduated in 1985. After working a short period as an interior designer, I decided I’d never be happy unless I gave illustration a shot. I enrolled in the illustration associate degree program at Pratt Institute in 1989. I have worked as a freelance illustrator since graduating in 1991.

 

Kyrsten Brooker previously collaborated on Henry’s Amazing Machine, which Kirkus Reviews praised, saying “readers will be mesmerized,” and School Library Journal said “begs to be read aloud.” Ms. Brooker lives in Edmonton, Canada.
