Lauren Rille felt a lot of colors when she was little, especially when it came to new things, like new schools, new friends, and new experiences. Sometimes it was hard to feel so much, but she eventually figured out that it was A-OK. Today, she still feels a lot of colors—and as an art director of children’s books, she also gets to play with lots of colors at work all day! Lauren lives with her husband, their young daughter, and their black-and-white dog in Santa Monica, California.
