Andrea Zimmerman and David Clemesha love making picture books. Their work is a fun process of writing and rewriting, then drawing and redrawing, to make the book better. Andrea does most of the story writing, and when they create illustrations, David does most of the drawings. When they like the basic pictures, Andrea does the painting. They use pencil, ink, and acrylic paint or Photoshop to create the final art. When they celebrate good news, they like to go out for pizza! Andrea and David are married, have three grown sons, and live in Southern California.
Andrea grew up in Ohio, Utah, New York, and California. She loved exploring nature, reading comic books, and riding her horse. Andrea received a BA in Fine Arts for Children and a DDS in dentistry. Andrea enjoys gardening, going for walks, and visiting museums.
David grew up in England and moved to the United States as a teenager. He loved tennis and playing music. David received BA and MA degrees in English and became an elementary school teacher. He loves reading, drawing, and walking the dogs.
