Wendell Minor studied at the Ringling School of Art and Design in Sarasota. After his studies he moved to New York to begin his career, illustrating for major book publishers. He has illustrated 35 children's books during his career, and for such notable authors as David McCullough, Pat Conroy, Fannie Flagg and James Michener.
