Chuck Galey

Visual Artist / Teaching Artist
Chuck Galey has drawn all his life. “I had everything I needed growing up in a small farm town in the Mississippi Delta; a pencil, a piece of paper and a long-winded Baptist preacher.”  He has illustrated over 70 educational books and 17 children’s picture books, one that he authored. When he is not working on books in his studio in Jackson, Mississippi, he presents exciting school programs that inspire and astonish students, and encourage them to be creative in their reading, writing and art. In keeping with his love of literature and art, he also reviews children’s picture books for Parents & Kids Magazine. www.chuckgaley.com
