hey, it's me!
MaryRose Lovgren (AKA Little Messy Illustration) has degrees in Zoology and English Literature from the University of California at Davis and uses her background in science and storytelling in her art. She also designs interpretive and educational materials, which you can view at www.maryroselovgren.com.
She has a fondness for pen-and-ink drawing and the illustrations in children's storybooks, and wouldn't mind living with the French cats in Paris (although that might make her five cats at home jealous).
Why “Little Messy Illustration”?
"Little Messy" was one of MaryRose’s favorite cats in a long line of Messy cats, so named for their fluffy (and often quite messy) fur. The current title holder goes by "Princess Messy."
Have an idea for a new drawing or book? Send her an email! (And by her, I mean me, because it's just me here, talking in the third person...)
