Interview with Author/Illustrator Faith Pray
Puddle Jump Collective:
Today we’re talking with Faith Pray, an author-illustrator living in Washington State in the Pacific Northwest.
Faith is represented by Molly O’Neill at Root Literary Agency, and is our featured illustrator this month for the June Downloadable Kidlit Calendar. Faith is joining us from her basement studio space.
Can you tell us a little bit about your workspace, Faith?
Hello, Puddle Jump! Thanks for the interview!
This is my happy, creative place.
It’s loaded with paper, books, heaps of art making tools,
and is extra rich thanks to some special people in my life.
The vintage ladder is made by my grandpa, shelves by my hubs and by my dad,
who also made me the most epic iPad/drawing board stand ever.
I have two furry studio assistants.
They like to take naps.
And taste paintbrushes.
I have a multitude of corkboards, chalkboards. and clipboards.
They help me keep track of all the things I need to remember.
