Working at an elementary school for four years inspired me to pursue my longtime dream of authoring & illustrating children's books. I was interested in communicating science and science fiction, which culminated in creating my own children's science app, ShoutScience!
Before I got to that point, I relied on the help of local illustrators and the SCBWI chapter in Austin to help me craft an illustration portfolio to submit to publishing houses. I even won "Most Promising Illustrator" at the Houston SCBWI conference. You can see some of my favorite selects below.
