About the Author:

Faryn Hughes is an illustrator who specializes in dreamy and ethereal watercolor works inspired by nature scenes, animal wildlife, fairy tales. She loves designing artwork that creates an encompassing, utopian atmosphere for the viewer while also telling a hidden narrative. Most of her work is done in a water based medium because of its natural ability to capture the fluidity of a childlike imagination as well as the vaporous nature of dreams. Visual storytelling is her artistic passion and is seen in all her illustrative works. Faryn's previous projects have been for children's books, editorial concepts, and storyboards.

Faryn graduated from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities in 2014 with a Bachelor’s Degree in studio art and illustration. She currently resides in Saint Paul, Minnesota with her two very fluffy cats, Cash and Finnegan. Rarely seen without a mug of tea, her free time consists of fantasy movies, Florence + the Machine songs, and prolonged, nature-filled walks for inspiration.

Faryn has currently illustrated five published children's books and has worked for national editorial clients such as The New York Times.
