Warm. So Warm
By Kate Garchinsky
From The Secret Life of the Skunk written by Laurence Pringle (Boyds Mills Press, August 13, 2019).
Kate Garchinsky’s first word was “bird.” Now she illustrates award-winning books about birds and other wild creatures, including The Secret Life of the Skunk (August 2019), Belle’s Journey, and The Secret Life of the Red Fox. She studied illustration at the University of the Arts, and in 2015 was awarded the Eckelberry Fellowship for nature artists at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University in Philadelphia. During school visits and private classes, Kate brings students along on her process of using illustration to discover the wonders of science. She lives with her husband, Brian, her beagle, Maggie May, and two kitties in Edgmont, Pennsylvania. Learn more at PenguinArt.com and on Instagram (@katesnowbird).
