About the Founders
In addition to co-founding Blue Lake Children’s Publishing, Judy and Rosie have founded two other companies: PrintPaks, a children's software company, and Kibu, a social networking site for teenage girls. Beyond their shared passion for early literacy and children’s products, they continue to pursue other areas of interest.
Rosie is a prolific and eclectic artist who thrives in both the worlds of fine art and commercial art, exhibiting her wide range of work at art fairs and online. Rosie loves the fusion of the traditional disciplines of drawing, painting, illustration, photography and typography with the complex power of digital paint. She creates her masterpieces at the intersection of traditional art and the newest technology, always with grace and humor. Explore more of Rosie’s art and find her products at Etsy.
