Patricia Reeder Eubank has been drawing and painting since childhood. She studied art at Principia College and went on to study illustration at LA Art Center College of Design. Patti works in a combination of watercolor, digital, and acrylic media and loves them all. She has written and illustrated many titles, including Seaman's Journal and ABCs of Halloween. Patti and her husband have four grown children and live on a very small ranch in central California with several horses, a Scottish Highland cow, four cats, two bulldogs, a Newfie, and a Great Pyrenees. Her love of animals is evident in every book she illustrates.
