Growing up in Southern California, Shelley Couvillion's interest in the relationship between words and pictures started young. Shelley loved to listen to her mother read books aloud about all manner of things, from Lord Of The Rings to The Little House on the Prairie. She started taking college courses in high school and has been working in both watercolor and digital since then.
Currently she is most inspired by her adventurous daughter and can't get enough of drawing her.
Shelley is represented by Danielle Smith at Lupine Grove Creative and is dreaming of (and working towards) the day she will be a published author/illustrator. She's done work for Disney and Bravery Magazine and is a proud member of SCBWI.
Together Shelley and Vromans are donating 40% of the proceeds to First Place For Youth. This California based non-profit supports children transitioning out of the foster care system and into adulthood.
