She regularly filled her class projects in various subjects with drawings that were relevant to the topics assigned. She vividly remembers two topics: the Lewis and Clark expedition; and mosquitoes.

Visitors view this year’s Original Art exhibit at the Society of Illustrators.
NEW YORK—To all those who think that illustrating a children’s book is child’s play, the Society of Illustrators challenges you to think again.
