Kristin Sorra is an award-winning illustrator specializing in children's publishing and products. Her work has also appeared in comics, magazines, textiles, puzzles, posters, digital media, and her mom's birthday cards. 

Originally from Baltimore, Kristin loved to draw at an early age. In high school, she took an interest in designing clothes and wearing original designs to school dances, and so decided to pursue fashion design at Pratt Institute in New York. After two years of cutting, draping and tailoring, it was fashion illustration that lured her back to drawing. She finished her degree in Communications Design with a concentration in Illustration.

Shortly after graduating, Kristin co-founded Atomic Paintbrush, one of the first studios to provide digital coloring to all the major comic companies. While running Atomic, she also focused on children’s book illustration and creating characters and stories for animation. Her work has been published by companies like Simon & Schuster, Harcourt, Highlights, Houghton Mifflin, McGraw-Hill, Penguin Putnam, and Scholastic. She has presented animation ideas to Dreamworks, Hanna Barbera, Jim Henson Studios, Film Roman, and Nickelodeon to name a few. She was also a finalist for Fox Studios’ Pitch-O-Rama (a one-time event in search of the next "The Simpson's").

Kristin lives in a quaint Hudson River town just a few miles north of New York City, with her young daughter.
