Candace Camling lives in Des Moines, Iowa where she writes and creates artwork in her attic studio. She lives with her family; including three naughty cats. She earned a BFA in illustration and digital media from Kendall College of Art & Design.
For her, being an illustrator means getting to solve visual problems, learning about new topics constantly and trying to bring a little joy into the world. Her favorite things to read are non-fiction picture books, graphic novels, and anything with a hint of magic.
Candace has won many awards in juried shows and contests. She has also worked with a wide variety of clients and collaborators. (See list below)
Candace Camling has been a member of SCBWI since 2008.
