Marie Story found her career path in a rather unconventional way. Born and raised as a third-culture kid in Asia, Africa, and Central America, she was exposed to incredible international beauty, culture, and art from a very young age. Instead of taking the traditional educational route, she spent several years in apprenticeships under professional illustrators and designers around the world. Each one contributed something unique, and her work is a reflection of many individual influences.
Today, she writes and illustrates books from her home in San Antonio, Texas. She lives with her husband (author Peter J Story) and two very adventurous pugs named Pup and Kip.
