Lisa Congdon

We’re very pleased to welcome Lisa Congdon to The Children’s Book Review today. Lisa is an incredibly talented painter and designer much in demand these days. Her latest book Imogen, written by Amy Novesky (see our interview here), details the great passion Imogen Cunningham committed to her groundbreaking photography and her three growing boys. It’s a treat to carefully study the boldly painted illustrations Lisa has created in the book. We’re delighted to share our chat about becoming an artist, unusual animals, and all things Imogen!
