Portrait of Lindsay Barrett George

When she was a girl, Lindsay Barrett George's grandfather gave her a set of paints and brushes. She has been painting ever since. At the age of eight, she moved from the West Indies to the United States. Drawing pictures of her West Indies home helped her to make friends here. Today, she loves to draw pictures that make children curious about what's coming next.
