Anca Sandu Budisan

Children’s author and illustrator

Anca Sandu was born in eastern Romania. At age 2 she was “discovered” by her grandma as a perfect circle “drawer”, and subsequently started a career as the artist of the family. In school, her passion for drawing helped her overcome her introversion. This still works today.
She now lives in Beaverton, OR, along with her husband and their ever expanding book collection.

She’s the author-illustrator of Churchill’s Tale of Tails, as well as other books about pigs,  good monsters, sheep, and now gnus and shrews.
