The fourth girl in a family of eight children, Colleen Madden made it through childhood pretending to be a space princess with a wookie sidekick and drawing in her cardboard box art studio. Colleen spent some time acting and training at The Second City in Chicago, and then went on to graduate from a small liberal arts school in Massachusetts, with a major in illustration and English literature. She currently resides in the Philadelphia area with her writer-husband and their two sons. She has illustrated for many different kinds of clients and is the recipient of an International Greeting Card Louie Award. When not illustrating, Colleen can be found long-distance running, making her boys giggle, and eating lots and lots of sushi.
