“Born in Miami and surrounded by amazing artwork and breathtaking nature, it’s no wonder that I became an artist and nature lover. At 14, I went to Design and Architecture Senior High in Miami. In May 2019, I graduated with Honors from the School of Visual Arts in NYC. Currently, I am a freelance illustrator/graphic designer in Miami. My goal is to teach children about animals through my artwork so that they can love and respect them as well as the planet. My illustrations have been published on ReadWorks.org, shown in Miami, New York City, and in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France. Through making art, I hope to spread joy and positivity to everyone I meet.”

“The Right Way to Self Publish is like the GPS. It not only tells you every twist and turn you will encounter on your journey to Self Publication, but it alerts you when you are about to be confronted with them. It even gives you traffic warnings so you know what to avoid.”
