Amariah Rauscher is the illustrator of the Princess Truly book series. She believes that there is an illustrator inside of each and every person. A mother of two girls, Amariah understands how amazing it is when young readers are excited about picture books. Amariah is passionate about sharing the illustration process in a fun and interactive way.
In her presentation, she reads her most recent book to students. Younger children will learn about how the pictures help tell the story, and older children will get a more in-depth discussion about how pictures and text work together. She shows children how she draws Princess Truly and her animal friends. Older children will learn about the book creation process beginning with thumbnails and character design, and ending with final illustrations.
Amariah has a Masters in Communication and lives with her family in Chatham, Illinois. Find out more at www.amariahrauscher.com.
