I am a freelance illustrator and graphic designer with 10 years experience in the print and publishing industry. I have worked on a wide range of children’s books and publications with small businesses and independent authors helping them bring their stories to life.
I spend my days drawing on my ipad with a cup of cold coffee by my side and a cat on my lap. Creating fun and quirky characters for picture books and middle grade.
I am an Author and Illustrator of children's books. I earned my bachelor's of Fine Arts from the Ringling College of Art and Design with a major in Illustration, graduating with honors in 2003.
Debut picture book: Winter 2023 (Feiwel & Friends).
I am a member of the SCBWI. And have the honor of being the winner of the Regional Conference logo competition for two consecutive years (MD/DE/WV 2019 & 2020).
Besides creating my own content, I also teach illustration, both in traditional and digital techniques and offer mentorships and portfolio reviews.
I am bilingual and enjoy the mixture of my Cuban and Ecuadorian cultural roots. I grew up in Ecuador, a beautifully diverse country that is close to my heart.
