In the fourth grade my teacher read us Roald Dahl every afternoon, and our homework assignments were to make picture books. That was when I decided to be an Illustrator and storyteller. I earned my BFA in Illustration at San Jose State University, and received scholarship awards from the Society of Illustrators.
I'm inspired by nature, and love scones + coffee + tea! In our spare time, my husband and I travel to visit big trees and mountains at national parks. I bake, knit, crochet, and craft in some way or another, which I update on my blog: Cinders & Fog . You can also follow my art on instagram @andrea.rhodes.ruiz .
