Kimberly Merritt, CED Children’s Book Illustrator, has always loved drawing. She majored in art in high school and took several classes in college. Her favorite subject matter has always been people, especially children at play. Kimberly says, “I love working on Christian children’s books because of the many fun scenes of children and animals having adventures. I have illustrated for self-publishing authors and enjoy the process of making their story come to life with color and faces and action. I often pray for my authors, as I paint, and for those who may read their books.” We found Kimberly when one of our clients told us how thrilled she was with the illustrations she was doing for her children’s book. Kimberly became a Christian when she was twenty-eight, and four years later her husband heard and responded to the call to pastoral ministry. She has served beside him as a pastor’s wife since 1997. God blessed them with four children, who Kim homeschooled until they were grown and went off to college. Currently, Kimberly serves beside her husband, Pastor Craig Merritt, at Wellsville Bible Church in New York. Kimberly notes, “Excitingly, one of the ways the Lord has provided for us has been through my children’s book illustration work. The Lord has been so precious to me through the seasons of life. I want to bring Him glory with every page of illustration."
