Tao Nyeu grew up in Niskayuna, New York, a town whose name means “Flowing Fields of Corn.” She earned a BFA from Cornell University and moved to New York City to live life as a graphic designer. As it turns out, drawing is more fun so she waved goodbye to the design world to attend the School of Visual Arts’ MFA Illustration program. She graduated in 2007 with a special interest in silkscreening and etching. She now lives in Southern California.
Her books include Wonder Bear, which won the Founder’s Award from the Society of Illustrators and a Marion Vannet Ridgway Award Honor; and Bunny Days, which won the Ezra Jack Keats Award and a Golden Kite Award Honor. She has also contributed to Manners Mashup: A Goofy Guide to Good Behavior and Nursery Rhyme Comics: 50 Timeless Rhymes from 50 Celebrated Cartoonists.
She has to thank Rabid Rabbit for giving her the opportunity to create her very first comic ever.
