Katy Tanis is a fabric designer, explorer, illustrator and children’s book author. She lives and works at the Jersey shore. She spends most of her days chasing deadlines but occasionally wanders to far-off places, like
Madagascar, where she chases primates instead. Her work is inspired by specific ecosystems and the wonderful webs of life that they contain. She has a soft spot for the weirdos of the animal kingdom. She’s never met a color she didn’t like.
