Suçie Stevenson

Portrait of Suçie Stevenson

Suçie Stevenson grew up in a family of artists. She didn't start out as an illustrator, though. For a while she worked as a truck driver, a shellfisher, and a mason's helper. Today she illustrates books and even writes some of her own. She has drawn the pictures for all of the Henry and Mudge books, written by Cynthia Rylant.

  • Suçie Stevenson takes her own dogs to the beach. She likes seeing them swim through big waves to fetch their tennis ball.
  • Her brother's Great Dane, Jake, was her inspiration for Mudge.
