Jaclyn Sinquett grew up at the Jersey shore. She spent her childhood playing in her dad’s garden, feeding worms to the box turtles, building drip castles at the beach, mostly avoiding sun burn, and drawing every animal she could think of. Her family always encouraged her creativity and provided inspiration with gorgeous nature books and lots of different art supplies.
Jaclyn still loves drawing animals and nature, and crafting thoughtful, detailed illustrations using a wide range of techniques. Her work is best loved for its fresh color palettes, hand-lettering, and characters that touch the heart.
She received her BFA in Illustration from the University of the Arts in 2008, and has been illustrating professionally ever since. She is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.
Jaclyn is proud to be represented by Christy Tugeau Ewers at the CAT Agency.
