My name is Chloe Burgett. I'm an illustrator living in the US Midwest with my husband and our orange cat, Pencil. Here's my portfolio.
I'm the SCBWI Illustrator Coordinator
When I'm not drawing and painting, I'm out for a run, baking something I saw on GBBO, filming a stop-motion video, or writing a letter to an art mentee... Or perhaps I'm attending my 100,000th kidlit webinar for the year.
I love collaborating, I love learning through play, and I love telling stories.
Where I've Worked:
I graduated with a B.S. in Art & Illustration in 2015. Then, I ran youth and family education for 4 years at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. My experience there formed my education philosophy and my incredible calendar-managing skills!
What I've Done:
I've illustrated 6 educational children's books for a non-profit in NW Arkansas.
Tortuga and the Hare, 2019
Turning Red; Learning to Choose Love, 2019
Dog's Job, 2019
The Three Billy Goats Gruff, 2017
Cowboy in the Kitchen, 2016
I won the Most Promising Illustrator Award at the SCBWI Houston Conference in October 2020!
Where I Want to Go:
I want to illustrate stories with adventurous child protagonists, who explore and find their world is not-so-ordinary after all. Children are intelligent, capable, strong, worth respecting and listening to...So let's make stories that way!
Flying Eye Books. They publish Joe Todd-Stanton, whose work I adore.
Candlewick Press makes so many beautiful books! (esp Nosy Crow Imprint!)
Any of the big 5 (naturally!)
Are you writing a children's book?
I accept commissions for indie-published picture books and MG/YA Novels if the story is a good fit. Send an email to info@chloebartistry or use the contact page way up at the top to start a conversation!
If you're an agent or art director and you're still reading this page,

Hmm, it seems like we could be a good match? Or perhaps I'm a match for your brilliant agent friend? I'm currently seeking representation, and my next book deal of course. Please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org.
