I'm an active member of (SCBWI) the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and a US ARMY veteran.
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 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.
