Sue Marshall Ward was born in Houston to a family of artists. Her mother worked as an illustrator, while her grandmother and aunt were both painters. After studying art at Arlington State College, now the University of Texas at Arlington, Mrs. Ward began a long career in art direction, advertising, and illustration.
An illustrator at heart, Ward left years of advertising illustration, where
computers had gained a firm foothold in graphics, and jumped into children's books. “It took me a long time to find myself,” she says, “but I love illustrating children's text and taking the art a few steps beyond the word, when there is an opportunity. I love the feel of illustrating for children and the people I've met along the way.”
Sue Marshall Ward is also the illustrator of the Children's Choice Award book Ten Redneck Babies. Another Pelican title she illustrated, Texas Mother Goose, was named one of the “Best Books of the Year in Texas” by the San Angelo Standard-Times. She lives in
Arlington, Texas, with her husband and pet dove. She's crazy about her
grandchildren, animals, and shopping with friends. She is a supporter of the
Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and speaks to children and adult groups on the importance of “creating for yourself.”
