A favorite speaker at conferences, libraries, and schools, Cyd has illustrated over 50 children’s books including the bestselling I Love You, Stinky Face series. You might have even seen her work on Happy Meal boxes and games or in magazines.

Conference and Festival Appearances

The Playful Spirit of Life, Art, and Story
30 minutes or 60 minutes

Get ready for a romp through an illustrator’s creative world where stories hide under beds and up in trees, and doodles become adorable childhood favorites. Ever wonder what happens after a manuscript is accepted for publication? Sketches go back and forth, editors come and go, and creative types sometimes get a little kooky. In the end, illustrators have a few juicy stories to tell of their own! Cyd's conference and festival appearances are great for parent nights, teacher conferences, artist guilds, and more.

Virtual Visits

In-school visits are always best, but Cyd will sometimes meet through Skype or iChat for a 30-minute Q&A. You might even get a sneak peek into her latest project on the drawing board!

AV and Tech Needs for In-Person Visits

Cyd brings her own AV equipment, including document camera, projector, and computer. Please provide the biggest screen or white wall possible, a microphone, a table, an extension cord and power strip, and loads of excited kids!
