Though Anne Appert grew up and has lived in New Jersey her whole life, her childhood was spent with her nose stuck in a book and a wild imagination that transformed her backyard into faraway places. Then she went to the Fashion Institute of Technology for her B.F.A. in Illustration with a minor in English so she could bring her stories to life. Now she puts those worlds on paper using digital media to create books for other children to stick their noses into.
Anne finds her inspiration from her childhood, the outdoors, anything colorful, and traveling, especially visiting her many cute nephews and nieces. When not creating stories and art for children, Anne likes to paint flowers and patterns and has taken several classes at the Fashion Institute in Textile and Surface Design.
Anne has been a member of SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators) since 2012, and is a member of the 12x12 challenge, a challenge to write 12 picture books in 12 months. She won Honorable Mention in the Unpublished Category at the NJ SCBWI 2018 Conference Art Show.
