Amy June Bates is a freelance childrens book illustrator. She is best known for her watercolor and ink illustrations, and her graphic designs have been described as "uncluttered and inviting." She has worked with Harper Collins, Hyperion, Cricket Magazine, Barnes and Noble, and Farrer, Strauss and Giroux, among others. Amy grew up in Utah and graduated in Illustration from Brigham Young University. While in Utah, she worked with the Waterford Institute, where she worked on over twenty early readers. Most importantly, Amy gets to draw, which makes her happy. She now lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan with her husband, Alex (who speaks Japanese) and super-child Evan (who speaks English and twenty other unrecognized languages).
