Hello writer! I'm a self-published author and illustrator who wants to help you, bring your big idea to life!
A little more about Janae…
Janae is the author and illustrator to To My Falling Leaves: The Story of Autumn (published in 2015), and illustrator to Fifi the Birthday Grump by author Nicole Marie (published in 2018). She resides in San Jose, California, where she spends her time freelancing for other writers and creating concept art for new book ideas. Janae’s biggest passion is incorporating art expression into mental health and believes that the creative process can be a powerful tool to emotional healing. She plans on furthering her schooling to receive her Marriage and Family Therapy license with an emphasis in art therapy to explore more in this field.
…sometimes having a visual for your big idea gives you just the confidence boost you need. An idea is often hard to put into words, especially when you’re having to pitch it to others. Whether you’re approaching publishers, agents, editors, funders, or friends, pitching your big idea for the first time can be scary. That is why concept art gives such a helping hand! As a self-published author and illustrator to now two children’s books To My Falling Leaves: The Story of Autumn and Fifi the Birthday Grump, I have developed a deep love for children’s books. My experience has shown me the best ways we can pitch our ideas, and not just pitch them, but pitch them well. So how can I help you do this?
