01 about

 

For the last few years, Beth has dedicated herself to developing picture book ideas as both writer and illustrator. She participates 

in many SCBWI events, joined a brilliant writing group and wakes before the sun each day to work in her studio. Beth now has several stories ready to enter the world and hopefully make their way into

the hands of children. 

                 

Beth also illustrated                                written by Mary Ann Rothman (starred Publishers Weekly review)

and                                                

written by Eve Bunting published with BOYDS MILL PRESS.

     

 

Her first illustrating job came about when author Barbara Bottner saw an exhibition of Beth's watercolors of abandoned buildings at the PASADENA HISTORICAL MUSEUM and was inspired to write                        Years later this quiet picture book was sold to Peachtree Publishers.

One of the earliest gigs she

remembers is tracing drawings

for animated commercials with her

father when he worked for Jay Ward

Studios (creators of Rocky and Bullwinkle). She was nine years old.

Beth Spiegel is an author/illustrator based in

Los Angeles. Both parents

were artists, so working in the visual arts came early and naturally.

Since then, Beth has created visual stories as a fine art painter, illustrator, and animator. She has also edited award-winning documentaries for National Geographic, Warner Brothers, Paramount Vantage and IMAX. The storytelling skills and persistence learned in these fields help her when creating books for children.
