THE ILLUSTRATOR: Kylie Westlake is an illustrator and graphic designer from smack dab in the middle of the Finger Lakes region. Her illustrations started gaining recognition while she was earning her degree for Fine Arts and Graphic Design. During her schooling, she received multiple awards for her playful, light-hearted illustrations, and her self portrait “CREATE” was chosen for a year-long exhibit in Washington D.C. As she took illustration-based classes, Kylie realized her passions and style harmonized with children’s illustrations, and she decided to pursue the craft professionally. When she isn’t collecting sunflower decor or playing with her own preposterous pooch, Chloe, you can contact Kylie through her home office at email@example.com.
