My name is Meredith Fern, and I spent the first few years of my life
living in a forest, believing in unicorns. Somewhere in there, I picked up a piece of calcium carbonate and, with it, drew a picture of a bunny on the sidewalk.
Ever since then, I've liked to draw things. I like to play with paint and build with paper, dream up crazy ideas and tell stories. After graduating from Boise State University with degrees in illustration and music, I happily continue to dabble in both areas in my work and out in the community.
By day I work as a graphic designer. I have over fifteen years experience in design and have created everything from t-shirts and product packaging to social graphics and landing pages, with posters and other print promotional materials in between.
By night I have illustrated three books: a wordless picture book called
7% Chance of Sunshine, a picture book by Ramona Merrill called This Land, and a third book will come out this year, called A Cheer for the Year, written by Raven Howell and published by Clear Fork Publishing.
I live with my husband and love-of-my-life, Aaron, and our two siamese cats. We are over-the-moon in love with our just-now-two-year-old daughter and are excitedly expecting a baby boy this fall.
I enjoy wearing hats. And I still believe in unicorns.
