Cody Hooper-Kaufmann is the owner and creator of HeArt by Cody. He creates whimsical watercolors and prints them himself, at home, on a variety of products such as mugs, cards, stickers, drawstring backpacks, buttons, and more! He is a self-taught illustrator and studied sculpture and graphic design at Portland Community Collage and The Academy of Art University. He lives in Vancouver, WA with his husband and their fur children, Secret and Smokey. They are frequent players of board games and very quickly became handymen after purchasing their first fixer-upper.

Cody has illustrated two wonderful books for Pygmy Giraffe, including X-Ray Dinosaurs and Other Prehistoric Creatures as well as Let's Count Butterflies!
