About Me

 Hi! I'm Jennifer. I'm an author-illustrator living in sunny San Diego. I received my fine art degree from the University of Irvine, and currently teach painting and drawing to students of all ages. I own my own art studio called Palette Passions.

I've shown my work in galleries locally as well as online, and I've sold paintings in more than 5 countries. 


Backpacking, traveling internationally, nature and playing the piano are my favorite hobbies. I love rainy days, reading, jazz music, and candles.

*SCBWI member and children's book lover.*

Random Fact: I taught myself the harmonica and I've been to the Galapagos Islands!
