Lynn Blake John grew up in Washington, DC and lives in Carmarthen, Wales. She was an IT geek in her day job. Nowadays, she works as an artist, writer, illustrator, and art teacher. She uses all media and particularly likes the odd and humorous effects that can be achieved with collage. Some of her recent projects include an exhibition of the strange beauty of seedpods at the National Botanical Gardens of Wales, "Revenge of the Vegetables," (for kids who won't eat their greens), "The Accidental Athlete" (for kids who won't exercise) and "The Animal Chronicles, quirky stories about eco-aware animals." She loves teaching and has a Master's degree in Education.
