Award-winning Children's Illustrator Blayne Fox illustrated The Land of the Pines. Blayne draws from the visual cues gained in her childhood while romping through the Missouri woodlands. Magical kingdoms and creatures imagined as a child from the native flora and fauna inspire her professional artwork today often specializing in animal, fantasy, and adventure subjects. Primarily self-taught, Blayne later attended art school, plunging soon after into her industry and quickly gaining the attention of clients including Discovery Channel and National Geographic Kids. Blayne is currently represented by Deborah Wolfe LTD.
