Wendy Wax is a children’s book author and a collage artist. She grew up in Michigan where she read lots of children’s books. Her favorite authors were Astrid Lindgren, Beverly Cleary, Roald Dahl, Jean Little, and E. B. White. Wendy has always liked to draw, and she kept a journal from third grade on.

After earning a BFA in graphic design from the University of Michigan, Wendy moved to New York City, where she was a children’s book editor for several years.

During that time, she began creating photo-collages for advertising, editorial, and children’s books. Her clients include: American Express, HBO, Bloomberg, UTNE Reader, HarperCollins, Penguin USA, Gold Digest, Good Housekeeping, and The New York Times.

Wendy currently divides her time between Remsenburg, New York and New York City. She likes to swim, sing, paint, and spend time with her photographer husband Jon (whose photos are often in Wendy’s collages) and her amazing 6-year-old son, Jonah.
