Please send me a message. I am available for contract illustration work and writing assignments for children's books, children's magazines, children's market products and educational materials. I am eager to connect with Agents or Editors interested in working with me.
Writing and Illustrating for children's books is my happy place. I'm a graduate from the Academy of Art University, and worked for many years as a Visual Effects Artist for film and animation. After becoming a mother of 3 little girls I changed my focus to now work from home on children's market illustration and writing.
As a long time member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, I have slowly been working toward my goal of becoming a published Author and Illustrator. SCBWI has been my support through this process.
I have spent many years working on my craft while raising children. I finally feel ready to work in publishing. Please contact me if you're interested in working with me, or even if you have advice on how I can get started in this industry.
I am currenlty working on Illustrating a middle grade fantasy book. I will post updates soon. Visit my instagram to see my work in progress. https://www.instagram.com/jessicawcooper/channel/
