Steph Weinger is a Children's Natural Illustrator whose work commonly depicts nature, exploration, and wonder themes. Her passion for science, learning, and wildlife inspires her to create naturalistic illustrations that promote wildlife education for children. She believes that the key to wildlife conservation is curiosity and learning. 
Originally from the Hudson Valley, NY, Steph now lives in Philadelphia, PA, with her cat, Akeya, and a leopard gecko, Marco. When not illustrating, she spends her time traveling and exploring nature. She loves visiting National Parks and Nature Reserves and sketching different landscapes and critters. 
Steph is developing her series of children's wildlife education books and activities, Animals Everywhere. Through the series, she hopes to inspire children to learn about the animals in their hometowns and the countryside. Her series is currently limited to United States and North American critters. 
Steph earned a bachelor's degree in Illustration with a minor in business from Moore College of Art and design in 2020.

"Through my illustrations, I want to teach others about the natural world around us and show how every creature, big or small, plays a crucial role in sustaining our beautiful planet."
