She is a former elementary school teacher. Katherine lives in Vermont. Sherry Rogers spent twelve years as a corporate graphic designer and artist before "leaving it all behind" for the freelance world. In addition to illustrating Newton and Me, Sherry has illustrated Moose and Magpie; Paws, Claws, Hands & Feet; Sort It Out!; Kersplatypus; Burro's Tortillas; and If You Were a Parrot for Sylvan Dell.
