Beth Krommes is an artist who works as a children's book illustrator, wood engraver, painter, and pattern designer. Her best-known book is The House in the Night by Susan Marie Swanson, for which she received the Caldecott award in 2009.

 

"I have loved art since my early childhood in Emmaus, PA. My parents, four sisters, and many relatives encouraged me. I earned a BFA in painting from Syracuse University (which included a year abroad in London at St. Martin's School of Art), and an MAT in art education from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. Before turning to editorial illustration in 1989, I taught art in a public school, managed a fine handcraft shop, and art directed a computer magazine. I've been a children's book illustrator since my first book, Grandmother Winter, came out in 1999. I'm still amazed and humbled that in 2009 my sixth book, The House in the Night by Susan Marie Swanson, won the Caldecott Medal.

I'm proud to have recently earned an AAS degree in Textile/Surface Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC. It is my hope to license designs for fabric, wallpaper, and more — as well as to continue illustrating for children.

My husband and I live in Peterborough, NH, where we raised our two daughters. My mission is to create art that is joyful in spirit, universal in nature, and that is accessible and affordable to others."
