Artist Nataliya A. Goodman teaches high school math and science, but she has always loved art. In fact, she received advanced degrees in both physics and artistic design.
She began drawing and painting when she was six years old. Her framed artwork hangs on walls in Russia and America.
She decided to use watercolors to paint the pictures for The Goose Who Could Not Fly. She lived in Nizhniy Novgorod, Russia before moving to the United States, where she has lived for more than a decade.
Nataliya Goodman enjoys reading to children and she looks forward to reading The Goose Who Could Not Fly to children everywhere -- including her own children.
