About the Author
Author and illustrator of the ever-popular "Blackboard Bear" series, Martha Alexander was known for her soft pencil and watercolor illustrations and her simple texts, both of which regale young readers with the magic, delights, and frustrations of childhood. Born in Georgia, Martha was an artist since childhood, trying her hand at ceramics, doll making, fabric and clothing design, portrait painting, children's murals and paintings, decorative collages and mosaics, and teaching art to adults and children. Martha said after attending the Cincinnati Academy of Art, she did not find her niche in the art world until, at the age of forty-five, she was given her first children's book to illustrate. She knew then that her long search for the right medium of expression had been more than justified.
