Danna York is from Belton, Missouri. She fills her sketchbooks with ideas and thoughts collected from her surroundings, using them as the springboard for her work. She teaches art to children and treasures the memories of her creative experiences with her own children when they were young. Danna hopes to encourage this same creative process in children who read her book and is working on a new book with the same format.
