Kathy Stinson is the author of children's classics Red is Best, and Big or Little?, and recent multi-award winners like The Man with the Violin, and Harry and Walter. She lives in Rockwood, Ontario.
Now with decades of experience living and working in the collective arts -- privately, publicly, institutionally, commercially, and entrepreneurially -- Robin appreciates even more the gifts and instincts that guided her illustrations and overall design for Red is Best. A new era of involvement in community arts, music, theater, dance, and literacy projects keeps Robin's home studio busy year-round.
