Analise Black is an illustrator from Colorado and believes that storytelling is the language of the heart. Storytelling connects people. Her desire is to encourage families and children through visual storytelling. Living in Bosnia and Herzegovina for five years and traveling to over 25 countries has had a great influence on who she is today. It taught her how all cultures use the language of storytelling to teach lessons from the past, how to apply them to the present and have hope for the future. She is inspired by children, nature, color and texture. The mediums she enjoys most are watercolor, Copic markers, digital art, and she can work in other mediums as well. Analise looks forward to partnering with authors to bring their characters and their stories to life!
