Donna Carr Roberts
A professional Portrait Artist, Donna's animal paintings inspired her to create these stories.
Donna Carr Roberts is the Author AND the Illustrator of “The Adventures of Mr. Fuzzy Ears”. Donna is the Artist in Residence at Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois and a professional portrait artist.
She has had a lifetime of business careers but none as much fun as working on Mr. Fuzzy Ears. The funny antics of her dogs, Scamp, Izzy, Sofie and Teddy inspired her to write this book. Her books have been called fables and compared to the warmth and style of "Winnie the Pooh" and "Peter Rabbit".
The funny, loving, caring messages help children discover that all of us have the power to make life better for these helpless animals who offer us unconditional love.
