About Sterling B. Freeman

Author & Illustrator | Speaker | Art Teacherpreneur

Sterling B. Freeman is the author and illustrator of the Little Dreamer children’s book series, creator of Little Dreamers Character Art classes, and the founder of Little Light Series—a brand with a mission to energize, enlighten, and empower kids.

Sterling has always had a passion for creative arts and communication since he was a young child. Throughout the years, his goal has been to energize, enlighten, and empower others. Writing and illustrating children’s books and teaching art classes to kids online helps him continue to achieve that dream. “All children can dream, but not every child has the exposure to keep them believing that they can fulfill them,” says Sterling. His books and classes aim to keep their little imaginations alive and show them that anything is possible if they put their minds to it.

From an early age, Sterling was exposed to the visual and performing arts, entrepreneurship, and writing. After attending college for design, Sterling discovered his drive to use his experience and talents to inspire others to fulfill their fullest potential—especially the biggest dreamers of all, children.

Author of Goodnight, Little Dreamer

Sterling wrote and illustrated his first children’s book, Goodnight, Little Dreamer, which includes a companion coloring book, in 2020. It is the first in Sterling’s Little Dreamer series for young creatives and emerging leaders.

When Sterling is not writing and illustrating children’s stories, he’s a “teacherpreneur,” teaching basic cartooning to kids ages 4–8 from around the world using numbers, letters, and shapes. With the use of these characters that they also learn in school, kids attending his art sessions gain extra practice and build on their drawing skills. “Even if your child doesn’t have the natural talent to draw, my class will show them how in ways they already understand,” says Sterling.


After becoming an author, Sterling had the pleasure of presenting live and virtual talks and readings to children in some of the local schools and began teaching art online—all in an effort to keep their “little lights” shining.
