Cheryl Nathan grew up in Los Angeles. When her kindergarten teacher gave her mother a paintbrush to take home, Cheryl's life path became clear. After high school, she attended the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, and then worked as a freelance illustrator and designer until she was hired as an art director for a publishing company. Eventually, Cheryl gravitated to the children's book division, and that is when she illustrated her first picture book. Since then, she has illustrated over twenty children's books combining painting, drawing, and collage. Cheryl lives in Ft. Lauderdale. VISIT Cheryl Nathan's website here.
