A native to Southern California, Andrea Yomtob graduated cum laude with her BFA in Illustration from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. She worked for twenty years as a Computer Animator/FX Artist at Nickelodeon and Film Roman on shows including SpongeBob Squarepants and Dora The Explorer until 2019.

As a full-time picture book author/illustrator, Yomtob enjoys combining mediums like watercolor and collage with her digital skills as an animator.
It’s my passion to illustrate picture books and develop stories for kids!
I enjoy using mediums that use a hands-on approach such as watercolor, ink and collage. Then, assembling them using digital skills learned in my 20 year career as an animator.
I enjoy the revision process and collaborating on projects. I look forward to the two writing groups I participate in monthly along with the great one-on-one and mentored critique groups offered through Storyteller Academy.
I reside with my husband and two young gremlins :-) in Los Angeles, CA.Storyteller Academy Pro MemberTwitter: andreayomtobInstagram: yomtobillustrationWinner of #KTIllustrates SCBWI LA: 2021
