Keynote Address: Claudia McGehee

Claudia McGehee is an illustrator-author living in Iowa City. Her creative inspiration comes directly from nature, especially the regional prairies and woodland around her, and the Pacific Northwest, where she grew up. Claudia pairs her main illustration medium, scratchboard, with vivid watercolor to create earthy, wood-cut like images. Some days she writes about pictures. Some days she draw about words. It’s all in telling a story.
