I am very pleasant.

I am very pleasant.


My name is Erin McGuire, I’m an illustrator currently working in Dallas, Texas.
I love books, and I love illustrating them. To date, I've illustrated over fifty books across a range of middle grade and picture book projects.

Outside of work, I enjoy baking, all manner of crafty endeavors, and camping.
