Marianna Smith is a first-year graduate student in Illustration at Syracuse University’s College of Visual and Performing Arts, with a BFA in Communication Arts from Virginia Commonwealth University. Smith has a background in children’s book illustration and art education, having illustrated two books for self-published authors and taught art classes to students ranging from elementary through college level.

This series is from Smith’s second picture book collaboration with self-published author Peggy Nicholls. The book Percy the Pesky Squirrel follows a squirrel named Percy and his antics stealing food from a bird feeder. While Smith created sixteen watercolor illustrations for Nicholls’ book, the presented series consists of eight printed reproductions highlighting key moments from the story.
