Jessica Dupree is an artist and illustrator currently living in Kingwood, Texas. She also has her own business teaching art from her home and enjoys the freedom it gives her to raise her kids and be creative. Her illustrations are primarily in oil or pen and ink and watercolor. She has illustrated two picture books, The Life and Rhymes of Miss Biscuit: Lost and Found by Jason Phinney and Poems for the Inner Child by Amy Jo Murphy. She has also illustrated the chapter book, Mary the Monarch Butterfly Queen and her Great Transformation by J.S. Jung and the middle grade novel, Burned by Julie Herman. When not painting or writing or teaching, she enjoys reading to her kids, relaxing on the hammock with her cat, and cutting castles out of cardboard boxes. She has two BAs (Fine Arts and Theater) from the University of Dallas.
