About the Illustrator

Betony Coons was born and raised on an apple orchard in Kansas. Their house was full of wonders – puppet theaters, zip lines, tight rope walks, a functional stage and more. Now, as a mother of three spunky girls and a little boy in Greeley, Colorado, Betony finds herself compelled to make beautiful things and to bring those around her into the process. Her work encompasses bits and pieces from her life and story.
