My name is Carlianne Tipsey and I am an Author/Illustrator with a love of children's media and all things cute.
I grew up in a rural part of Sacramento, California where we had goats and chickens as pets. I have wanted to be an artist since I was 9 years old watching Disney movies and playing with my coloring books.
My dream job was to color all day long, I even wrote a letter to Disney asking if there was a job for that (the answer was no, but they were really sweet and told me what else I could do). Which totally paid off when I landed my first job out of college with Disney Interactive. I literally had to draw Disney princesses and create concept art for some of my favorite IPs.
After Disney I decided I really wanted to dive into children's media. I have two beautiful toddlers that keep me very busy and very inspired to create. Right now I help write and illustrate books with Kiwico, as well as create educational content for our monthly magazines and other products.
