Kelly Rae Bahr

Originally from Plymouth, Minnesota, I now live in Seattle, Washington with my husband Jon and son Finn. With a degree in graphic design from Montana State University, I am an illustrator/author/designer by day, dance instructor by night, and the art director for indie publisher Dock Street Press.

I enjoy crafting, crocheting, dancing, interior decorating, puzzling, meandering walks near water and picking berries. I particularly love colorful patterns, chai tea, sunshine, poppies, cryptograms and string cheese.
