Jenny is the author and illustrator of Same, Same but Different and My Travelin’ Eye. She is a freelance illustrator who studied at the Kansas City Art Institute and The Illustration Academy. When she isn’t traveling around the world, Jenny plays and paints on a homestead in the mountains of Northern New Mexico with her family.
I met Jenny a few years ago when I was living in Colorado; I was on my way to a show in Santa Fe and stopped at her place for lunch (the best lunch ever, made mostly from things out of her flourishing garden)! Jenny is the nicest person ever, and was even a featured artist in “Drawing Lab.” She’s super cool, too. Look at this:
She’s a new mom and worked on the book when her daughter Tulsi was in her pouch, on her back, or asleep nearby. Precious!
Here’s a peek at some of the inside illustrations:

So Jenny is giving away a signed copy of this beautiful new book to one of you! Please leave a comment for a chance to win; I will pick the winner randomly on Saturday, December 10th. Thanks!
And the winner is commenter #9, Linda! Thanks everyone!
