Kerisa is an author-illustrator of children’s books. Born and raised in Southern California, Kerisa now lives in Washington, DC, with her family. She is a first-generation Asian-American who loves her grandma’s cooking and always craves a big bowl of phở.
As a previous early childhood development teacher and children’s book buyer for an indie bookstore with a background in graphic design, Kerisa has combined her love of illustrating and telling stories into a passion for crafting picture books.
When Kerisa isn’t drawing or crafting stories, you can find Kerisa munching on chocolate chip cookies, exploring new places, and petting every dog that walks by.
Kerisa is represented by Analieze Cervantes of The Harvey Klinger Literary Agency Inc.
