Growing up on a farm in Georgia, Cyd had lots of time to dream…a lot of time to be quiet… lying all warm-in-the-sun flat-on-your-back in a wheat field…thats when she learned to feel and notice magic in the ordinary world. She went on to study graphic design and fine arts at the University of Georgia. Cyd is the illustrator of over 35 books, including the I Love You, Stinky Face series. She currently resides in southeast Michigan and loves to travel, practice yoga and garden. Speaking to schoolchildren and attending conferences is also something Cyd loves to do.
