Susan Gal began her illustration career as a poster and calendar artist in Los Angeles and then became an 'in-betweener' (the artist who fills in movements between key frames in animation) for Disney Animation Florida. Although she loved the Disney years in Florida, her California’s home beckoned. Susan returned to the Bay Area where she happily creates lively, textural and whimsical illustrations. When not illustrating, Susan enjoys biking, backpacking, and hiking to really high places with her husband and daughter. Susan wrote and illustrated her first children's book, Night Lights, to be published by Knopf in June 2009.
