Artist and children’s book illustrator Wade Zahares works out of his studio on his small farm in southern Maine just outside of Kennebunk where he grew up.
He takes inspiration for his whimsical landscapes from the rolling hills surrounding his studio and the creatures that live there. A graduate of Maryland Institute College of Art, Zahares’ work has been singled out by Time Magazine and The New York Times as amoung the very best picture books of 1998. His work is sold through selected galleries thoughout New England, is in many private and corporate collections, and the permanent collection at the Decordova Museum of Art in Lincoln, Massachusetts, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, New York. His 7th picture book, Pony Island, with Walker Books was just released this Spring.
