About Me

My name is Amariah and I am the illustrator of the Princess Truly book series (Scholastic). I live in Illinois with my husband, two beautiful daughters, and three dogs. I come from a big family and spent most of my childhood reading, drawing, and building forts in our living room with my brothers and sisters. Today, I have a Masters in Communication, but all I really wants to do is paint pictures. In my free time, I can be found playing board games with my family, or working on one of the many unfinished projects around my home. My work on the Princess Truly series is dedicated to her two daughters who have provided so much inspiration along the way.

We have three dogs, Henry, Felix, and Nika. They are free spirits and pretty much get to do whatever they want.

I have a dry, sarcastic sense of humor. I love watching cartoons, reading books and playing video games. I also love wearing slippery socks so that I can slide into every room in my house. If I get a really good running start I can slide from one end of the kitchen to the other. If you are ever feeling down I strongly suggest sock-sliding.
