As a child, when Jeanette picked up a pencil and began to draw, she found there was no better place than in her sketchbook. Today the feeling hasn’t changed. Only now, it’s not just her sketchbook, it’s also her computer. Jeanette's interest is in drawing fashionistas, lifestyle depictions, as well as whimsical characters with a strong influence by Japan’s rich and trendy culture. She was a finalist in the international character design competition, CWC Tokyo’s Fresh Characters Found in 2004. Jeanette is a native of South Texas and holds a degree in Fine Arts from the University of the Incarnate Word.  Besides illustrating, Jeanette loves spending time with her husband and spunky dog, Maggie.
