author imageElizabeth Lilly is an author-illustrator, animator and graphic designer. Her first picture book, entitled Geraldine, is about a giraffe who has trouble fitting in (figuratively and literally) when she moves to a human school. It will be published by Neal Porter Books/Roaring Brook Press, an imprint of Macmillan, in 2018.

Elizabeth was a reading, doodling daydreamer in high school, and, unsure of her path, went to Architecture School at Virginia Tech for college. Her aversion to rulers and all things technical made this choice a disaster, and after two years she relocated to the safer haven of the Maryland Institute College of Art, where (thankfully) no one asked her to make scale-accurate plans or construct chipboard staircases. Instead she made stories, both animated and still, out of the places she lived in, and the places that lived in her.

Elizabeth graduated from college in May of 2014. She now makes her stories in a little old house in the little old city of Baltimore, Maryland
