Mary GrandePré, the illustrator for the American version Harry Potter books, has been drawing since she was five years old. During her mid-twenties, while attending art school, she developed the love for pastels. She has tried other things but always comes back to pastels. She enjoys illustrating children's books best because she can use bright colors. Perhaps her biggest accomplishments to date are the covers of the Harry potter books and her work as a visionary in the environment/scenery development in DreamWorks animated film Antz.
