Hen&ink Coop: Janie Bynum

About Janie Bynum

As an author and illustrator for many years, Janie has created many lovable characters and stories for younger children. "Otis", her picture book about a pig who hates mud, was recognized as a Junior Library Guild Selection. Janie enjoys creating a visual story (and characters) that the viewer can relate to emotionally, and with humor—whether it’s over the span of a 32-page picture book or through a single drawing, doodle, or full-color illustration. Growing up in Texas, Janie graduated with a BFA in graphic design with an emphasis on illustration. She loves to travel and experience other cultures, drawing inspiration from the people, the landscape, and cuisine. Known to her friends as a bit of a nomad, Janie lives in a nearly-100-year-old storybook house in southwest Michigan—for now.
