ABOUT ANGELA PADRON
I write picture books and middle grade novels as well as illustrate. I also write and edit content for educational publishers and work as a literacy coach for English language learners. In 2014, I was chosen as a
semi-finalist for theTomie dePaola Illustration Award. So far I’ve illustrated two books, “The Hero in You” by Ellis Paul and “My Body Belongs to Me” by Jill Starishevsky.
My illustrations are multi-cultural, colorful, bold and full of texture. My favorite mediums to use are the messy ones – batik, collage, pastels, watercolors, charcoal, and pencils. Photoshop helps put my illustrations together.
