Author/illustrator Lucky Platt’s debut children’s book Imagine a Wolf (Page Street Kids 2021) was a learn-on-the-job experience. She will share aspects of her rewarding book journey, including inspirations and lessons learned, and give participants a tour of her studio work space.

About Lucky Platt
Author-illustrator Lucky Platt creates books for children in her lakeside rural Maine studio. She works in a range of traditional art mediums, and her stories explore themes of resilience, healing, positive self expression and inclusion. She has presented art and writing workshops for children and adults through the Maine Crafts Association, Schoodic Arts for All, the Maine Arts Commission and Rockland Public Library, and has shown her artwork in galleries and non-traditional/unexpected art spaces in Maine and New York. In early 2020, she left her work as an arts administrator to devote all of her time to writing and illustrating. She has created two self-published picture books on commission; Imagine a Wolf (Page Street Kids, January 2021) is her debut picture book for the trade market. Lucky is a two-time recipient of an Individual Artist Project Grant from the Maine Arts Commission (2016, 2020), a two-time recipient of an Anderson Ranch Art Center scholarship (2019, 2020), and a recipient of an Ox-Bow Artists’Residency scholarship for printmaking (2004). She studied painting, drawing and printmaking at Vassar College, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and Complutense City University of Madrid, and has enriched her craft with workshops at the Maine Women Writers’Collection, Anderson Ranch Arts Center, Farnsworth Art Museum and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts among others.
