The author

Cindy Ann Ganaden is an illustrator and licensed artist, living the life creative; imagining, designing, and creating sassy, bubble gum, simply sweet art that is sure to put a smile on your face. In her past life, Cindy Ann spent over 13 years working as an art director and design manager. And just over a year ago she made the leap to full-time artist and illustrator. Cindy Ann's been lucky to work with and learn from some amazing brands including Old Navy, Chronicle Books, Klutz, Time Inc., and Papyrus. Cindy Ann's time working with these corporations has given her an appreciation for what goes into developing and manufacturing a product line and it has helped strengthen her sense of vision, foresight, and creative thinking. Cindy Ann is known for coloring outside of the lines and on the walls! Originally from the East Coast, she now calls the Bay Area home. When Cindy Ann is taking a break from capturing her imagination within the pages of her sketchbook you can find her crafting and baking brownies with her daughter Ava Blu, husband, Jay and Boston Terrier, Penny.www.blupenny.com
