Presenting: Christine KORNACKI

My name is Christine and I am a writer/illustrator living in Bridgeport, CT. When I was two years old, I used to yell at my older brother for coloring wrong (he would always color outside the lines).  

Today, I work as a children's book writer and illustrator doing what I love most. I have created colorful, oil illustrations for a wide variety of clients in the advertising and KidLit industries. I received my MFA in illustration from the Hartford Art School. With experience as a graphic designer, photographer, and educator, I use this strong foundational background to bring my illustrations to life. 

My recent work includes the children's books, The Sparkle BoxThe First Christmas Night, and The Sparkle Egg, and the six book series for the American Girl doll characters Marie-Grace and Cecile.
