Lori Richmond makes art, tells stories, and inspires others to be creative.

She is the children’s author-illustrator of Pax and Blue, which was called a "sprightly debut" by The New York Times and selected for exhibition in the Society of Illustrators 'Original Art' show. She is also the author-illustrator of Bunny's Staycation and the forthcoming Bunny Business, and the illustrator of several other picture books.

Lori spent the first 20 years of her career in the corporate design world, most recently at The Knot, creating smart and effective visual solutions in branding, marketing, website design, and more. She was also a contributing editor to The Bump, making her a sought-after expert on all things baby and parenting. In that capacity, she has appeared on Today, Good Morning America, CNN, and more.

Lori is also a marathoner and creator of View From My Run, the popular running-inspired art series featured by Runner’s World and seen by millions on the streets of New York City on LinkNYC kiosks.

She lives and creates in Brooklyn, NY with her design-y husband and two sons, both of whom are named after typefaces.
