Welcome to the official website for Illustrator and Author Tannie Smith.


Tannie M. Smith is a BFA graduate of Texas State University in Communication Design. For ten years she owned and operated the successful graphic design firm, tann|design. In 2011 Tannie chose to close down her design business in order to spend more time with her family. This decision has allowed Tannie to go back to her original love of illustration and writing stories for children. Today she is an Illustrator and Author in Austin, Texas and focuses primarily on picture books. Tannie has a strong appetite for knowledge and continuously seeks ways to learn and improve her skill by pestering any who are willing to teach her.
