Author Illustrator Kelly Light was born in 1970 off exit 149 of the Garden State Parkway. She grew up down the shore surrounded by giant roadside dinosaurs, cotton candy colors, and skee ball sounds. Schooled on Saturday morning cartoons and Sunday Funny pages, she picked up a pencil, started drawing, and never stopped. Kelly teaches and hopes to inspire other author/illustrators to bring life to their lines and personality to their characters!
“I made a goal to complete a picture book I have been working on for 5 years, maybe even more I will admit, and I accomplished that goal with help from this course, and the amazing instruction from Courtney [Pippin-Mathur] and Kelly [Light].”
