Micha Archer - Author and Illustrator


Working in oil, watercolors, pen and ink, and collage, I create layered pieces from various materials on paper and digitally.

With a B.A. in Multicultural Education from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst I taught for 15 years in a Kindergarten classroom. In addition to consulting with teachers on incorporating art into their classrooms, I offer workshops and classes to children, adults and other artists. 

My design and illustration clients include;  Penguin Randomhouse, Charlesbridge press,the Massachusetts Department of Parks and Recreation,  Interlink Publishing, Cricket Magazine, McGraw Hill, Hartcourt, Scholastic, Pearson-Scott Foresman and other educational presses.

I have  illustrated  two books with Barefoot Books; Lola’s Fandango and The Wise Fool.

My book "Daniel Finds a Poem"  published by Penguin/Paulsen came out in Feb 2016. and I am currently working on a sequel coming out in 2018.

"Around the World in a Bathtub" by Wade Bradford with Charlesbridge press will be coming out July 2017
