Layne Johnson has drawn and painted the world around him since he was a teenager. A professional artist and graphic designer, he has created art for more than a dozen children's books, several of which have earned him honors and awards. Johnson also illustrated the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal Award winner Brian's Bird.
A freelance illustrator for more than twenty years, Johnson earned a bachelor of fine arts from the University of Houston. He is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and the Picture Book Artists Association and speaks at schools and libraries, teaching children how to make their own books.
Picturing himself as an adventurer more than an artist, Johnson sees every book as a new quest for readers. When not designing children's books, Johnson enjoys gardening, spending time with his family, golfing, and traveling to historic sites. He lives with his wife and family in Houston, Texas.
