Jennifer is an award-winning illustrator and children’s book author. She has illustrated picture books, children’s magazines, greeting cards, party ware and educational materials. She is the author and illustrator of numerous picture books. The best-selling of which, "May I Please Have a Cookie?" has sold over one million copies.
Like most illustrators, Jennifer has been drawing incessantly most of her life. Her first masterpieces, “Red Crayon on White Ottoman” and “Permanent Marker on Hard Wood Floor” met with decidedly harsh criticism. But by the time she was ten years old, she had a budding career as a commercial artist. She had a small but lucrative side business selling drawings to classmates for 25 cents each.
Jennifer is a creative individual who also has in depth knowledge of technology. She has a BS in Computer Science from the University of Pittsburgh with minors in studio art and mathematics; and she also holds a Master of Computer Science from Stevens Institute of Technology.
We look forward to having Jenn share how illustrations help enhance and expand the stories in picture books alwith her presentation 'Visual Storytelling: Conveying Story Thru Pictures'. Jenn will be selling and signing books after the workshop.
