A Little About Jen
Jennifer Ball - Cordero is a children’s book illustrator/designer living and working in the New York City area.
Her digital illustration style melds painting, collage, and hand drawn line with her signature quirky, fun-loving personality. Along with illustration, Jen has spent more than 17 years as an award-winning print and packaging designer for some of the top companies on Long Island.
When Jen’s not creatively noodling in her studio, she’s outside (in any weather) playing with her daughters
Emma-Jane, and Charlotteanne, her dog Luke and her husband Anthony —or rockin’ it at a concert for her
plethora of favorite bands. All while contemplating new book and character ideas.
Jen holds a BFA in Visual Communication Design from Hartford Art School.
She is an active member of Long Island Children’s Writers and Illustrators (LICWI),
SCBWI – Long Island Chapter, and CBIG (children’s book illustrators group).
Jen’s books include: "Hello Hands!", "Hello Mouth!", "Hello Feet" (Positive Foundations Publishing),
"Cleo's Big Ideas: One Thing Leads to Another" (Eifrig Publishing), "Cleo's Big Ideas: Onward and Upwards" (Eifrig Publishing), "Construction & Revision: A Writer's Handbook For the Language Arts Classroom" (Ballyhoo BookWorks) , " A Hidden Connection: A Children's Mystery" (Self-published by author) and "What's the Buzz" (Self-Published by Author).
