Meet the Author/Illustrator

Elisabeth Davis, author/illustrator

After a career as an English professor, Davis began to dabble in watercolors, concentrating on portraits of children and pets. She is affectionately called “Grizzlie” by her grandchildren.

Harley and Mo are her son and daughter-in-law's dogs and the inspirations for her series of Throwaway Puppy books, all raising money for animal rescue charities.

Davis has been selected as the Event Artist for the 2015 Bark in the Park Top Dog Festival for Charlotte-Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. Her painting of the 2014 Top Dog will be featured on the official festival t-shirt.
