Interests and Personality

Biographywww.nancycoffelt.com I have drawn pictures for as long as I can remember. My favorite possessions (besides books) were crayons, pencils, and felt pens and I even won first prize in a coloring contest when I was in the second grade. I still draw but now I usually work with oil pastels on black paper. Animals are my main subject matter. Whether I am writing and illustrating children's books, creating designs for products or working on fine art, animals always seem to pop up. I live and work in Portland, Oregon. Clients include: Highlights for Children Henry Holt Houghton Mifflin Starbucks The Nature Company Second Nature Software Harcourt Mud Puppy Press Gango Editions The Canvas Company Doernbecher Children's Hospital Little, Brown, & Co. Books include: Good Night Sigmund Dogs in Space Tom's Fish The Dog Who Cried Woof Dogs in Space: The Great Space Doghouse What's Cookin' Pug in a Truck (Fall 2006) Fred Stays With Me (2007)

Hi - Thanks for inviting me to be one of your pals here! No problem, my pleasure - art should be individual and personal I believe and yours certainly is, great! :-) So have you used these charachters within stories for your own children as I have? :-) A lasting family heirloom eh? :-) Are they following their dad? OK - chat sometime? Peter
