Hi! I’m Blue Flynn and I’ve been an artist since I could grasp a crayon in my tiny fist. Once I gained full control of my motor skills, I became an illustrator. I primarily work in watercolor, but I like to incorporate all sorts of media into my work, like gouache, ink and colored pencil.
Growing up with a mother who read to me all the time and a steady diet of Reading Rainbow left me with a lifelong love of the magical combination of words and pictures. In elementary school, when we were assigned to write our own stories, mine were always accompanied by drawings and a fully “illustrated” cover and so, in a turn that was shocking to no one, when I grew up, I decided to focus myself on the art of visual storytelling and making picture books.
I live with an excitable Australian Shepherd in the southern tip of mainland New York, which, I would like to note, is decidedly not “Upstate”, despite what all you city kids might think.
