• I was born in Thailand, raised in America. Creating something from almost nothing: I find this fascinating! I pick up blank paper and pencil, and with diligent effort there is soon an image – perhaps a whole other world to behold – that previously existed only in my mind, now on paper. I can keep it forever. It feels… like magic.  I have discovered that illustration is my ultimate creative outlet.

    I live with my husband, three daughters, and a small dog in Colorado.

    I am represented by East West Literary Agency. I’ve been a member of SCBWI since 2011 and won an On-the-Verge Emerging Voices Award for diversity in 2013.
