Author Bio

TEAGAN WHITE is a freelance designer & illustrator from Chicago, now living and working in Minnesota, where they earned their BFA in Illustration from the Minneapolis College of Art & Design in 2012. Their work encompasses intricate drawings of flora and fauna, playful watercolors of anthropomorphic critters, illustrated typography, and everything in between. Teagan lives in the woods across the street from train tracks and a fox den, and spends their free time scolding neighborhood squirrels, exploring forests, rivers, lakes, and swamps, picking wildflowers, and collecting animal bones. Adventures with Barefoot Critters is their first picture book.

"The text is .... simple and effective in conveying the gist of each adventure and matches well with its complementary illustration .... If it wasn’t a blasphemous thing to do to a book, I would cut Adventures with Barefoot Critters apart and frame its pages as each page is lovely to gaze at all on its own." - CM Magazine


“Ample use of white space sets off the charming watercolour-and-gouache illustrations in muted colors. The many details on each page render a delightful glimpse into the animals’ cozy lives. Children will have fun discovering each creature’s personality .... Every decorated initial alphabet letter is surrounded by a different floral motif to replicate a medieval Book of Hours for little ones.” - Booklist
