About Me

I am an architect with an architecture degree from the University of California, Berkeley.  I currently reside in Oakland, California.  Most important, I love illustrating and storytelling and it all started when I was very little…

One of my most vivid and earliest memories as a young child was my drawing of an old man sitting on a stool.  I couldn’t believe how lifelike he turned out!  I showed my grandmother who immediately told my mom, “Did you know your daughter can draw?!”  I fell in love with drawing ever since.  Everyday after school I would watch cartoons and then try to create my own characters and stories.  My school notebooks were often filled with more outlandish doodles than actual notes.

I am a member of the SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators).  I illustrated 2 picture books that will be coming out this year: In a Village by the Sea (Creston Books, May 12, 2015) and Ada Byron Lovelace and the Thinking Machine (Creston Books, October 13, 2015).
