Tania Howells - Author/Illustrator

Tania lives in Toronto with her husband and son, Finch. She graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design in 1997 and has been a freelance illustrator for 15 years. Tania has done work for clients such as Today's Parent magazine, Chirp, Holt Renfrew, The National Post and many others. She is currently a stay-at-home mum, and after bedtime, she works on her drawings. In another life, Tania might like to be a fabric designer, a librarian or even a small-town cafe owner. She sometimes has trouble saying things out loud, just like Willow. She likes coffee and tea, walks, reading books, daydreaming and baking things. Instagram: @taniahowells
