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 gouache and colored pencils, I love to create joyful, colorful, and whimsical illustrations. I especially enjoy illustrating kids and "grown ups" interacting 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 provide plenty of ideas for new drawings! My job and illustration work go hand-in-hand, and each beautifully inspire the other.
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.
