Chamisa is an illustrator, art director and animator based in Portland, Oregon. As founder/creative director/one-woman-show at Studio Chamisa, she makes work for children’s books, brands, games and educational content. Her go-to illustration style is lush and textural with notes of nostalgia, dreaminess and play. Chamisa collaborates with clients to bring their stories to life, and enjoys making work that celebrates compassion, hope and connection. When she’s not making art you might find her gardening, buying too many books, or snuggling with her pup, Orca. Each season we'll be featuring a different Illustrator's work.

Covering the state of Oregon, our region is led by Regional Advisor Laura Byrd, with support from Assistant Regional Advisor Lisa Gerlits, Illustrator Coordinator Robin Chilstrom and an Advisory Committee. As volunteers, our goal is to help our members learn their craft and grow as creators and kidlit enthusiasts.
