Steve Light

Steve Light grew up in an enchanted place known as New Jersey. He went on to study Illustration at Pratt Institute, he also had the pleasure of studying and mentoring under Dave Passalacqua. Upon graduating he did some corporate illustrations for companies such as: AT&T, Sony Films, Absolut Vodka and the New York Times Book Review. Steve Light then went on to design buttons that were acquired by the Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum.
Then came a great opportunity for Steve to teach art to small children. Through his experiences as a teacher he found his true calling as a children's illustrator and storyteller. He has been teaching in the classroom for over 10 years with children 3-6 years old. 

Steve Light's storytelling to small children inspired him to create storyboxes for some classic stories. These storyboxes consist of wooden figures that he has hand-carved and uses to dramatize the story. (Source)
