    10-yr old Lynnor stapled pieces of paper together & made her first children’s book. Lynnor is inspired to illustrate stories about overcoming fears & finding one’s strength, feelings she had when she emigrated to the US. She became a programmer in Wall Street for 15 years but she never forgot her love of drawing for kids & kids at heart. She is interested in illustrating picture books & book covers. It’s her dream to write & illustrate stories where family relationships, culture, & food are intertwined. Lynnor is a member of SCBWI, CBIG, & PuddleJump Collective. She lives in New Jersey.  

    She is represented by Caryn Wiseman at Andrea Brown Literary Agency

ARTIST STATEMENT

  • I want to make stories focusing on diverse characters. My dream is to illustrate a picture book where family, food, and home(whatever that may mean) are center to the story.
