Katie Vernon is an illustrator who has spent most of her life in the midwest, but whose heart belongs in the mountains. Her inspiration comes from being a florist, working with alpacas, and living on a bus. She’s worked with Ikea, The Land of Nod, Urban Outfitters, and Chronicle Books; and has been featured on HGTV, Design*Sponge, and OhJoy! Some of her favorite things include rearranging furniture, seltzer water, and two different species of animals becoming friends. Katie is also rather fond of her partner, daughter, and part-dingo dog.
