Hen&ink Coop: Amy Huntington

About Amy Huntington

Amy Huntington began painting in kindergarten, using the ends of her pigtails for brushes. She drew castles, bicycles, sleds cats, and her siblings with the chicken pox. In summer she wrote poems while tucked in the branches of her favorite tree. After college she settled in Vermont, exhibiting her paintings in various New England galleries. As a new mother she fell in love with picture books, and has never looked back. She fills lots of sketchbooks and writes lots of words. Some turn into picture books. Her first picture book, One Monday, Orchard/Scholastic, 2001, had both Amy’s words and her art. She has since illustrated numerous books including Grandma Drove the Garbage Truck, (by Katie Clark,) Down East Books. Amy lives with her husband, a cat, hens and two sheep in an old Vermont farmhouse that needs lots of care. Member SCBWI, Authors Guild and Picture Book Artists Association.
