Hi there! My name is Sarah Kurpiel. I'm a librarian and picture book author/illustrator from the Midwest. As a self-taught illustrator, I've been doodling in the margins of notebooks for as long as I can remember. I started drawing digitally in 2016 and never stopped. My stories are inspired by animals, nature, and everyday life. I use a power wheelchair and consider my disability an important part of my identity.
