After graduating from ArtCenter College of Design with honors in Illustration, Vivien Mildenberger packed up her pencils and moved to a lovely farm just outside of Nashville, Tennessee, where she is a part of the Warren Studio of artists. There she works on her illustrations, pottery, and other general magic-making. She loves illustrating for children most of all and her art is filled with wonder, quirky characters and nods to history. Her work has been published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, QuartoKids, Little Bee, Penguin and Macmillan/Henry Holt.
