Illustrator, Author and Portrait Artist
Escape to Play is my debut, 2021 picture book! Years of passion and
dedication went into the making
Hi! I'm Becky Gehrisch. I am an portrait artist, illustrator and author. I enjoy working with colored pencils, acrylic paints and chalk pastels. Making art is particularly rewarding when I see a client’s (or child's) reaction to my work. My illustrations are influenced by my childhood and the countryside where I live.
I’m active in the local children’s book community! I have served as the Illustrator Coordinator for the Central and Southern Ohio SCBWI (Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators). I also teach art classes at my local libraries and writing classes at the Thurber House in Columbus, Ohio.
Thank you for taking a moment to explore my art.
