I found a book illustrated by one of my very favorite artists: Wallace Tripp!

Beth Neely is a native of Arizona who graduated from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art/Illustration. She has done watercolor illustrations for children’s books and for her own line of greeting cards for over twenty years.

Beth's book illustrations include Don’t Call Me Pig! A Javelina’s Story which was co-illustrated with Don Rantz and written by Conrad Storad. This book won the Arizona Book Publishers Association’s Glyph award for best art book, and best children’s book of 1999.  The book was also chosen by Governor Janet Napolitano as Arizona’s first reader book of 2005 in which every first grader in the state of Arizona was given a copy to read and keep. 
Through her whimsical and imaginative watercolor illustrations, Beth hopes to reflect her  love for animals, children’s books, and for the versatile medium of watercolor itself.
