Friday Studio Links!

The Studio of Wendy Watson

 

 



Today we've got a tour of the summer studio of award winning, third-generation author and artist Wendy Watson. Wendy has written and illustrated twenty-one children's books, and illustrated more than sixty children's books for other authors! Just a few of her books include, The Cats in Krasinski Square and Spuds both written by Karen Hess, and The Family Bedtime Treasury: Tales for Sleepy Times and Sweet Dreams and Bedtime Bunnies, both written by Wendy. And yes! I did say summer studio. Wendy is also is lucky enough to divide her time between two places, Arizona and Massachusetts.

 

And what studio wouldn't be complete with out a favorite chair and someone to keep you company.
