SUE MYDLIAK is a Staff Artist for Barking Rain Press. Drawing was always Sue’s first love. When she was little, instead of playing with others during recess, she would take out a tablet of paper, a pencil and just draw. She remembers drawing a tree and each of its leaves…every single one. Today, Sue still finds drawing relaxing. She currently works as a Special Education Paraprofessional for District 202, going to school at night first for an Associates Degree in General Studies and now for a second degree in Art. She enjoys sitting on her couch with all her pencils and a tablet on her lap to draw. In addition to her cover artwork for Barking Rain Press, Sue has illustrated children’s books for Patricia Kieta, and has written a fiction series, Birthright. She has lived in Illinois for well over 30 years. Find out more about Sue at her website.
