Amy June Bates is a nationally-known, prolific, and immensely talented children's book illustrator and artist who went to Brigham Young University, had the good fortune to marry Alex Bates and now is raising a boisterous family with him while she works diligently and successfully at her profession here in Carlisle. Here's her biography from her website:
"When Amy was a kid she loved to draw and read. She spent the time that she wasn't reading and drawing trying to keep her six brothers and sisters from drawing on her pictures and losing her place in whatever book she was reading. She loved the mountains quite a bit.
She grew up and learned to draw a lot better.
She currently lives in Pennsylvania with her three children and husband. She reads and she draws quite a bit."
Upon request, we will be delighted to fill orders of her books with inscribed, signed, and/or doodled copies. Amy is a gem, and she is only getting better, more famous, and more wonderful.
