About Me/Contact

I am a picture book writer and illustrator of children's books, middle grade chapter books, articles, short stories, and other commercial projects. Illustration clients include Cricket Media, NOW Art Los Angeles for the Walmart Mural Program, World Scientific Publishing Co., and Achieve 3000's literacy software. My degree is in Elementary Education with an Art Minor from Western Michigan University. I am a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, and participate in a critique group. 


I work digitally, sometimes in collage or pen and ink. When I am not teaching, drawing, and writing you can find me exploring the outdoors with my husband and children.

I am currently seeking representation and available for illustration projects. Please email at alyssaj3 (at) outlook (dot) com or fill out the contact form below.
