Cindy Derby is a children’s book writer, illustrator and puppeteer.
She began her journey as a puppeteer building puppets and performing in shows all over the world (including living rooms and underground railway stations). She was commissioned by Puppet Animation Scotland to produce her puppetry fable “Edward’s House of String”; and awarded by the Jim Henson Foundation to produce her one-woman puppetry musical “Mr. Kyoto’s Aquarium Shop”.
Continuing her love of storytelling, Cindy began creating picture books. She loves to use watercolor, acrylic, black ink, and cuts out pieces and collages it together digitally.
She currently lives in Marin County, California where her art studio is a big lovely mess with large fur balls from her dog.
