Tina & Carson Kügler

 kuglerstinaANDcarson_authorphoto

TINA and CARSON KüGLER both grew up in Milwaukee, influenced by Mary Nohl’s garden of fantastical creatures. They blossomed into professional artists and created three rather loud creatures of their own. After years of dreaming about how to turn Mary’s wonderland into a book, IN MARY’S GARDEN (HMH), Tina and Carson combined traditional and digital collage elements to capture the spirit of Mary’s art. The Küglers currently reside in Los Angeles, where Carson is a storyboard supervisor for Nickelodeon Animation, and Tina is a full-time children’s book illustrator.

The Busy Librarian’s (aka Matthew Winner) “Let’s Get Busy” podcast: Link

Watch Connect Read blog book trailer premiere and interview with Mr Schu: Link

“This quiet, engaging offering celebrates the artist’s vision and her idiosyncratic work.”
—Booklist
“The illustrations combine watercolor with digital painting, collage, and vintage papers, resulting in a soft palette and an uncomplicated, accessible drawing style. Children will delight in the whimsy of the art pieces and their placement in the garden as well as the participation of Mary’s dogs, Sassafras and Basil, in the discovery process.”
—School Library Journal

“The Küglers use watercolor, digital painting, collage and vintage papers to portray Mary’s world and sculptures…A friendly chronicle of an offbeat artist.”
—Kirkus

“Chalky mixed-media collages are punctuated by items of significance…a quiet homage.”
—Publishers Weekly

“The authors embellish their picture-book biography of artist Mary Nohl (1914–2001) with touches of whimsy…The illustrations—digital collages of scratchy, affectionate paintings on an assortment of papers—mirror this sense of wonder.”
—Horn Book Magazine

 

“An appealing and kid-friendly introduction to Nohl’s art.”
—Bulletin

    In Mary’s Garden is a beautiful book. Props to both you and Tina!

    Can’t believe you abandoned your Manitowoc roots in the bio though!

    No Key to the City for you!

My heart pours out to the Californians affected by the wildfires. My thoughts are with those who have lost & will continue to lose in the wake of these fires. Praying for your safety. Art by Diana Toledano @dianatoledano ・・・ Diana writes: Right now in Northern California we cannot see the sun because of the haze and ashes... Wishing everyone (especially politicians) would take responsibility and acknowledge what scientists have been saying for a long time: this is one of the consequences of CLIMATE CHANGE. Lies and denial are not the proper course of action. • What you do, how you shop, how you drink a soda... Everything has consequences. Be mindful. Take actions that help the Earth. ❤️ And stay safe. • P.S.: Isn’t it sad that I originally did this drawing a year ago for other wild fires? ••• #WildFires #ClimateChange #ClimateChangeIsReal #CaliforniaFires #WomenWhoDraw #SaveTheEarth #DianaToledano
