Illustrator: Hugh Keiser, a graduate of Cooper Union, has been painting and drawing for over 40 years. Included in numerous public and private collections, his work is the recipient of many awards.
Hugh began to explore the computer as an art medium about the same time he and Frances moved to Florida and fell in love with the brown pelican: the clown prince of birds. Illustrations for a series of books featuring Pelican Pete are the result.
Author: Frances Keiser, naturalist, wildlife rescue volunteer, and friend to animals and children, has worked for the public school system with preschoolers and conducted children's craft workshops.
Raised on fairy tales, Frances continues to develop her love of children's books by being a collector and avid reader to children. Many of her favorite stories are in rhyme, which influenced her to write her own books in verse.
Living on the beach near St. Augustine, Florida, the Keiser's home is aptly named "Pelican Perch."
