SOMERS, N.Y. -- Somers native Chad Wallace's artwork will be on display at the Somers Library during November.
Wallace is an award-winning artist who grew up in Somers. He has illustrated ten books for children including "Earth Day Birthday" (2003) "Earth Feeling The Heat" (2010) and "Seahorses" (2012).
Wallace’s illustrations often feature animals in their natural environments. Working in a realistic style, Wallace creates realism around his characters even when they are anthropomorphized to a degree. He is versatile when it comes to medium, and able to work traditionally and digitally while not sacrificing style.
Wallace is currently interested in re-formatting children’s storytelling for the modern age. As technologies continue to evolve, the demand for creative imagery, and practical teaching applications will also increase. It is in that spirit that he has created "The Meadow Mouse" (2014) a book/app written and illustrated by Wallace.
He earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at Syracuse University (1997) and received his Master of Fine Arts degree from FIT (2011).
