My name is Hannah, and I have always loved children's books. As a child, I loved to pore over the artwork in picture books, soaking up every last detail. Now, I get to create picture books of my own! I earned my BFA in Illustration from Cal State University, Long Beach. Using a variety of mediums, I love to create happy, colorful, and whimsical illustrations. I especially enjoy illustrating kids and animals in all sorts of environments, from forests to sea sides to cozy kitchens.


When I'm not in my studio, I'm working as an art teacher for young children. They help me stay in touch with my inner kid... and they provide plenty of inspiration for drawings!


Besides art and teaching, I love reading mystery novels, going for walks around my neighborhood, and enjoying a sweet treat!

I recently won the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators L.A. Region's annual Twitter banner contest. You can read my accompanying interview here.
