Alicia Schwab

Alicia Schwab (a-LEE-sha) has illustrated more than eight books in both Germany and the US. Alicia grew up in a southern Wisconsin family with a motley assortment of pets (including a toucan). She spent all her free time exploring the surrounding forest, climbing trees, building forts, and drawing with her older brother. But when her sister refused to share her illustrated children's magazine, Alicia was encouraged to write and illustrate her own stories.

That spark later led Alicia to acquire a Bachelor of Fine Arts in art and design from the University of Wisconsin-Stout. She began her career by co-founding a graphic design firm in Hannover, Germany. Now she lives in Minnesota and focuses on writing, illustrating, and designing books. Although she no longer climbs trees, she does enjoy long walks with her adventurous husband, daughter, and sweet dog.
