Naoko Stoop

Naoko Stoop's love of drawing began when she was a young girl growing up in Japan. She now lives and paints in Brooklyn, New York, using found materials like plywood and brown paper bags as her canvases. The author-illustrator of Red Knit Cap Girl, Naoko hopes her art will inspire the child within everyone.
