presenting: j a c l y n S I N Q U E T T

Jaclyn Sinquett grew up at the Jersey shore, whiling away the hours drawing every animal she could think of, and mostly avoiding sun burn. Her family always encouraged her creativity and provided lots of inspiration by way of comic books, nature magazines, and far too many art supplies. 

She received her BFA in Illustration from the University of the Arts in 2008, and has been illustrating professionally ever since. Her work is best loved for its vibrant, fresh color palettes, hand-lettering, patterning, and characters that touch the heart. She is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.

Jaclyn still loves the ocean, getting lost in a drawing, and garnering inspiration from her wonderful family. She shares a happy home with her loving husband, their adorable toddler, two mischievous cats, and one quirky bird (who whistles at anyone in earshot).
