Biography

Born in Detroit, Michigan. While studying studio art at Wheaton College in Norton, Massachusetts, Tadgell recalled how much fun it was to draw her own stories and realized illustrating children's books could be the right path. Encouraged to develop her art in a more realistic direction, she created a portfolio showing lively characters with an authenticity that was uniquely hers. Today, Tadgell has fourteen books and numerous educational pieces published. She also visits schools, gives lectures and conducts workshops.
