Tasha Tudor, one of America’s most beloved author-illustrators of children’s literature, has brought abiding joy to generations of readers. During her lifetime, she wrote and illustrated more than two dozen published texts while her artwork has now appeared in over one hundred different titles and on multitudinous greeting cards. She is justifiably famous and appreciated around the world, for the expressive nature of her exquisite watercolors and pencil drawings (particularly those featuring children) which often convey tranquility as well as gentle humor.
Except for relatively brief journeys abroad or to other parts of the USA, Tasha resided in New England from her birth on August 28, 1915 in Boston, Massachusetts to her death in Marlboro, Vermont on June 18, 2008. While living in four states of the American Northeast (Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Vermont), Tasha dreamed a beautiful life for herself and adroitly achieved it.
