Friday Favorites #17: Illustrator Spotlight on Jennifer A. Bell


Tressa from Tressa’s Wishful Endings hosts this meme every Friday.  She is taking a short break from the meme, but I am still posting as often as I can.  I use the meme to highlight some of my favorite illustrators.

Today I am featuring Jennifer A. Bell!

Jennifer’s work:

Don’t you love her soft, cheerful style? Her artwork is comforting and child friendly. Her artwork is the kind of thing that makes a person feel good inside, like everything is right with the world.

I love the colors she uses! They make me think of bedtime, hugs, and sweet memories.
