Angela Matteson enjoys painting charming, colorful characters. She illustrated GRUMBLES FROM THE TOWN: Mother-Goose Voices with a Twist by Jane Yolen and Rebecca Kai Dotlich. Her first book with author Laura Purdie Salas, IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT: Poems from a Wide-Awake House, was a 2020 Ohioana Book Award Juvenile finalist. Her second book with Salas is the humorous picture book, IF YOU WANT TO KNIT SOME MITTENS. Angela finds inspiration in nature, and lives in Indiana surrounded by flowers and tall mighty oak trees.
