Cheryl Kirk Noll

Illustrations to take you to other times and places.


Cheryl is an award-winning illustrator, and has been illustrating for children for more than 30 years.

She received a B.S. in Education from Lebanon Valley College in Annville, PA, and began her career as a fourth grade teacher in the same town where she lived when she was in elementary school... Smyrna, Delaware.

She moved to Providence to study illustration at Rhode Island School of Design, and still lives there with her husband and son.

Cheryl has combined her interest in illustration and education, focusing on multicultural and historic themes, and doing much of her illustration work for the educational market. Many of her projects involve research, and she has illustrated stories from diverse cultures and time periods such as the Hmong of Southeast Asia and the Han and Ming dynasties of China.

She has researched immigrant stories from Ellis Island to Angel Island, and folklore of the Native American tribes such as the Micmac, Alutiiq, Sioux and more, both pre- and post-European contact.

In addition to her freelance work, Cheryl teaches Children's Book Illustration and is the advisor for the Children's Book Illustration Certificate Program at Rhode Island School of Design CE.

She has also done many school residencies and is available to do school visits, and to speak at teacher, illustrator and librarian conferences.
