Kristin has been a freelance illustrator since 1991. She has illustrated several children's books, including Creepy Creatures, Bees, Wasps and Ants (Western Publishing Company), Butterflies and Moths (Western Publishing Company), and Insects: Peterson's Field Guide Coloring Book (Houghton Mifflin).
