Growing up in the suburbs of Copenhagen and Montreal, Tine was usually found drawing and making crafts. She published her first picture book while in grad school at Designskolen Kolding in Denmark. To date, she has illustrated for many Canadian magazines and for 20 books, earning a place on the prestigious IBBY Honour List. Her artistic tools of choice these days are ink, scissors, tracing paper and pencil. Tine runs a shared studio space in Montreal’s leafy Plateau-Mont-Royal neighbourhood, a few blocks from the triplex where she lives with her family.
