DIANE GOODE is a celebrated author and illustrator of children's books who is noted for her whimsical picture books.

“My actual training as an illustrator was minimal. I was a very good draftsman, painter, etcher, sculptor and book binder. I could draw anything I could see. Learning to draw from my imagination would take me decades.

"From the age of five I have had a mania for sketching the forms of things.
From about the age of fifty I produced a number of designs, yet of all I drew prior to the age of seventy there is truly nothing of great note.
At the age of seventy-two I finally apprehended something of the true quality of birds, animals, insects, fish and of the vital nature of grasses and trees.
Therefore, at eighty I shall have made some progress, at ninety I shall have penetrated even further the deeper meaning of things, at one hundred I shall have become truly marvelous, and at one hundred and ten, each dot, each line shall surely possess a life of its own. I only beg that gentlemen of sufficiently long life take care to note the truth of my words.
