Melissa Conroy

MELISSA CONROY always wanted to be an artist. She spent her childhood drawing and making things. She sewed together stuffed animals, drew hundreds of drawings of her cat Leon and nailed together a secret fort under the backyard deck with her sister. She still makes things, including books for kids. Melissa is the author and illustrator of two children's books, POPPY’S PANTS and GRANDMA IS AN AUTHOR; and most recently, an adult coloring book, THE LOWCOUNTRY COLORING BOOK.
