Amy Houser's Profile

About

What I do: I paint primarily in watercolor with accents of inks, pencils and anything else scrounged up around the studio.

What I believe: I believe it's possible for children to enjoy the old classic novels like Baum's Oz tales when re-illustrated for modern young minds, and, inspired by classic illustrators like Rackham, Dulac and Parrish and and modern geniuses like Lane Smith and dave McKean, I intend to make it so.

Where I've been: I've worked for Mattel, Fisher Price, Disney Consumer Products / The Disney Store, Build-A-Bear Workshop, Toys 'R' Us, The Philadelphia Orchestra and more creating art and designing toys. I had drinks with Neil Gaiman once, and someday, I intend to illustrate a book for him if it kills me.
