Hi there! I'm a picture book author, illustrator, and science educator living in the Seattle area. My work is inspired by my experience teaching STEM, my upbringing as a biracial army brat, and my adventures in parenting.
My books actively encourage children to question HOW they know what they know. When I'm not in the lab, I enjoy experimenting with art supplies in my home studio and visiting other local schools.
BEA'S BEES, by Katherine Pryor is the first book I've illustrated through Schiffer Publishing, Ltd.
My second book, IT'S A ROUND, ROUND WORLD! kicks off my new series, The Joulia Copernicus Books and will be released September 3rd, 2019 through Kane Press. The next book in the series, THE REASON FOR THE SEASONS will come out Spring 2020.
I'm the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion coordinator for the Western Washington chapter of SCBWI and a member of The Broadstrokes, an all-female illustration critique group.
I'm represented by Adria Goetz of Martin Literary Management.
