Beth Mills had a very boring job that didn't involve any art before she decided she'd much rather draw and write things for kids. Beth got her MFA at the Academy of Art University, where she learned how much she loves creating characters and giving them interesting stories. Beth also likes bright colors, fun shapes, and experimenting with all kinds of art. Beth lives in Texas with her family and far too many cats and dogs.
