Lisa Anchin (she/her) has been drawing since she could hold a pencil and making up stories since she could speak. She is often holed up in her studio stringing words together and compulsively doodling, but she also loves meeting other kidlit folks and volunteers as the Illustration Coordinator for SCBWI’s Metro NY Chapter. She is the author/illustrator of THE LITTLE GREEN GIRL (Dial Books for Young Readers 2019) and the forthcoming THE PAPER BIRD (Dial Books for Young Readers 2021). She is the illustrator of THE POLIO PIONEER (Knopf Books for Young Readers 2020), a Sydney Taylor 2021 Notable Book; A PENGUIN NAMED PATIENCE by Suzanne Lewis (Sleeping Bear Press 2015); and I WILL LOVE YOU by Alyssa Satin Capucilli (Scholastic 2017).
Lisa lives in Brooklyn with her husband, two daughters, and two studio cats.
