Cambria Evans studied Graphic Design at the Rhode Island School of Design where she fell in love with the medium of gouache. While still in school, she secured her first children's book deal with Houghton Mifflin for Bone Soup, leading to further opportunities as a writer and illustrator for multiple publishers. As an Art Director for Martha Stewart, she created artwork and designs for Martha Stewart Crafts specializing in gift wrap, stationery, and all things Halloween. Evans recently reconnected with gouache and is inspired by the concept of Greek daemons, 18th-century love tokens, and miniature portraits. After living in NYC and LA for the last 20 years, she now resides in Utah in a haunted house.
