Betsy grew up in Green Bay, Wisconsin. A graduate of the University of Wisconsin, she has taught Kindergarten in five different states. She loves her morning runs and traveling during summer. She lives just outside of Chicago with her husband two daughters. Largely self taught, Shane has been a professional illustrator since 2005. Initially working in comics and storyboards, Shane has transitioned to his real passion-children's books-even self-publishing several of his own. Shane's commitment and work ethic are unrivaled, with many clients going on to become personal friends. Above all else, Shane values his flexibility, diversity and determination to produce nothing less than perfect. Shane currently lives in Florida with his wonderful wife and their two tots. When not illustrating, he can usually be found by his in-laws's pool.
