As a kid, Kim Sponaugle had a very active imagination. If she had not found a sketch pencil to doodle, she may have landed in the circus! Upon graduation from The Art Institute of Philadelphia, she began working for DC Cook Publishing, designing children's curriculum but soon found her heart vocation in children’s illustration. While working as a kid’s portrait artist, Kim developed a style that captured the effervescence of childhood and has tried to incorporate that joy into her book work. In 2007, Kim started Picture Kitchen Studio, and has since had the opportunity and pleasure of illustrating more than sixty books for kids. Picture Kitchen Studio has been honored to receive the Mom’s Choice, Pinnacle Book, CIPA EVVY and Reader’s Favorite Awards.
