Kelli Gleiner is an artist living and working in Cincinnati, Ohio. She holds a BFA in drawing and painting from Bowling Green State University. After teaching art in the public and private sectors, making a lot of coffee, and working for the best children’s bookstore in the world, she harnessed her creative powers and helped to create and launch bluemanateeboxes.com. Her latest artistic feats are her two board books, Cheer Up, Monster and A Day With Monster, which feature a quirky monster/abominable snowman friend that was popular on her Etsy site. Currently, her time is shared between grant writing for Education Matters and her greatest work of art, her tiny human.
