Lynn Alpert
Illustrator | Designer | Storyteller

I fell in love with picture books as a child, and never quite got over it. Sometimes I even hug them, like in this photo!

I create art with heart, humor, and whimsy. My favorites are underdog stories that celebrate those living to the beat of their own drums. I’m also a sucker for quirky art, furry creatures, and a pun or two. Like they say, “Seven days without a pun…. makes one weak.”

I have a passion for design and have worked as a graphic designer for decades. I enjoy creating art for t-shirts and other merchandise, available for purchase at my Baked T’s and Spring stores.

Some other things that I love are the heart and humor of Ted Lasso, the physical comedy of Jack Black, the taste of chocolate chip cookies, the smell of honeysuckle, the warmth of a cup of tea, and the sound of a purring cat.


I live in St. Louis, Missouri where I spend my days drawing, reading, and writing with a cup of tea and a cat on my lap.
