Jeanne B. de Sainte Marie
Jeanne B. de Sainte Marie has been an avowed daydreamer since childhood, and now she dreams up fictional worlds for children’s books. She has also applied her colorful, engaging style to travel notebooks, Advent calendars, magazines, and materials for vehicles, including a fabric design for seats on Paris city buses. Jeanne grew up in Michigan, but has lived in Paris for many years. She studied fine art and textile design at the University of Michigan and the École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. Most recently, she illustrated Marielle in Paris (authored by Maxine Rose Schur).
