Author-Illustrator of
Escape to Play

Becky Gehrisch grew up drawing dogs and farm scenes after visiting her grandparents’ homes in the country. It’s no wonder that she went on to write and illustrate Escape to Play after earning an art degree from The Ohio State University.

Becky moved to a rural town in Ohio where she is constantly inspired by the beautiful countryside and wildlife just outside her window. You can find her getting into her own kind of shenanigans with her husband and kids as they explore the US in their RV.
