Once upon a time I played in a rocky driveway with little cars and made yarn canopies between trees. Now I live and work on the small but lovely seacoast of New Hampshire with my family.

I grew up in Weymouth, Massachusetts and was the first in my family to graduate college. My BFA from Syracuse University got me started in animation. I moved on to become an art director for a stationery manufacturer. I discovered my true passion, writing and illustrating books for children and have been working in that field since 2005.

My debut picture book as author and illustrator, SMALL (little bee, 2017) was on the Bank Street Best Book list in 2018.

TOO MUCH! NOT ENOUGH! (Tundra, 2018) was recently selected for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.

I love to illustrate for all types of media (magazines, games, puzzles, corporate). Contact: ginacarey @ comcast . net

Partial Client List: Random House, Tundra Books, little bee books, Houghton Mifflin, Capstone, Highlights Magazine, Peaceable Kingdom Press, Blue Orange Games, Cricket Magazine.

I am available for school and library visits. Email me for more information.
