Adventures of Beanie the Spider.

Christine is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and the National Art Education Association. She is an award winning American artist with a background in graphic design. Her inspiration for Beanie the Spider came when she noticed a real spider living on one of her paintings. Follow Beanie the Spider and her adventures on her website at
