About the Author:

I grew up in Colorado, where I developed a deep love and respect for our natural world. My dad was a hang-glider pilot, and I spent a lot of time in the mountains, camping, hanging out on the launch site, or bumping along in our beat-up 4-Runner, tracking him down. To this day I’m still more comfortable in a campsite than a city, and I draw on the nature around me as a source of endless inspiration. My greatest goal is to help to inspire others to see the beauty of our world and to understand the importance of protecting it.

The Fisherman & the Whale

Jessica Lanan’s dreamy and dramatic watercolor paintings bring to life a wordless story about wonder in the natural world.
