|Lori Taylor here! I'm a Michigan artist, author
and illustrator and I've been writing, drawing and making books
and art ever since I could hold a pencil.
I was inspired by lots of authors and illustrators, from Jean
Craighead George to Beatrix Potter and Michigan's own artist
and author, Gwen Frostic. My favorite books as a child were:
Paddington Bear, The Bobbsey Twins, The Swiss Family
Robinson, fairy tales, myths, legends and so many more.
I am still a book GEEK!
I was nine-years-old when I got my first library card.
It opened up a whole new world for me! I read and drew all the
time all over the five acres of Clarkston woods that I grew up
My HOLLY WILD book series highlights Michigan's
habitat, flora and fauna, legends and myths and science with
lots of art and fun.
The best part about this series is that it gets ME
up, out and into Michigan parks, woods, waters and
trails so I can tell you all about our fun wild places!
So come join me and HOLLY WILD's GeEK
(Geo-Explorer Kids)Team as we explore Michigan!
