About Martha Alexander

See more books from this Author
Martha Alexander was born in 1920 in Georgia. She attended the Cincinnati Academy of Art, and lived in many places, including New York, Alaska, and Washington state, before settling in Honolulu, Hawaii. 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. She is an author and an illustrator of children's books that deal mostly with what it's like to grow up. Martha Alexander first wrote and illustrated the Blackboard Bear books more than thirty years ago. Martha Alexander has written and illustrated a host of books for children with a fanciful soft touch that reminds many of the precarious and magical world of childhood. Alexander's first book was published in 1966, and she's still writing! 030
