Ard Hoyt

Biography:

Ard Hoyt is the illustrator of the award winning Wisteria Jane series, including, Wisteria Jane, Bingo Did It!, and Too Scared to Swim? and is the New York Times bestselling illustrator for over 25 picture books including Tilly the Trickster by Molly Shannon, I'm a Manatee by John Lithgow, and The Hair of Zoe Fleefenbacher Goes to School by Laurie Halse Anderson.

Ard was born in Temple, Texas and raised on picture books. From a very early age he discovered that even though he wasn't allowed to cross the street, he could go anywhere in a picture book. He fell in love with the worlds created by Robert Lawson, Steven Kellogg and H.A. Rey. This freedom grew to include his own pictures. Before long Ard discovered that with a white sheet of paper he could change the weather. He knew that he wanted to be a children's book illustrator and dreamed of one day having a book with his name on it next to the great ones. Ard graduated from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California in 2001 and hopes that you can open up one of his picture books and travel to a different world, just as he does.

    Say hello to the mostly sweet, but sometimes sour, Wisteria Jane Hummell. Named after her mother's favorite flower, Wisteria Jane sees the world in her own special way.

Wisteria Jane's days are filled with adventures, giggles, bumps, bruises, and some important life lessons.

    In her first adventure, Wisteria Jane learns how to be a thoughtful friend as she hones the skill of being honest without adding the "not so nice" truths she is so tempted to share.
