Biography of Daniëlle Schothorst, author and illustrator of the children's picture book "The Brightest Star" published by Clavis Publishing, New York.
Daniëlle Schothorst (Soest, NL, 1971) likes to tell stories with just a few words. Her writing and illustrations are inspired by the world around her: her three sons; her dog, Muppy; and her experiences as a child. Daniëlle lives in Steenwijk, the Netherlands, where besides writing and drawing for different media (including the Dutch version of Sesame Street), she gives lectures and workshops in schools and libraries. In her spare time, she loves to make stone sculptures.
