EMILY CALIMLIM is an author-illustrator who holds a BFA in Children’s Literature from Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design. As a child, she was an observer of nature, which now inspires her to depict the natural world in bright, whimsical fantasy. Emily’s stories are based deeply in the question of “What would I tell my younger self if I could?” Her picture books often reflect her early feelings of anxiety and what it felt like to be the odd one out. She wants children to feel safe, accepted, and true to themselves. Emily lives in Houston with her husband, parrot, and seriously grumpy cat. You can find her online at limlimillustration.com, Twitter and Instagram.
