MICHA ARCHER

Micha Archer has illustrated The Wise Fool and Lola’s Fandango, and Daniel Finds a Poem is the first book she’s also written. Working in collage and oil, her use of color and pattern is influenced by the folk art, crafts, and architecture of the countries she has visited and lived in. She realized the importance of the book as a teaching tool after teaching kindergarten and raising two children. Micha divides her time between Costa Rica and western Massachusetts, where she lives in the house she and her husband built, surrounded by gardens and forest to roam in.
