Jenn Kocsmiersky

Jenn Kocsmiersky is a watercolor artist and picture book illustrator based in upstate New York. She was adopted from Seoul, South Korea and grew up in rural New Hampshire. In trying to understand and reconcile an American upbringing with Korean origins, Jenn found comforting validation from picture books and stories about relatable moments and childhood experiences that just so happened to feature diverse main characters. Now, as a mom and artist, she hopes to promote this kind of subtle yet powerful form of representation. She is a recipient of the We Need Diverse Books 2018 Mentorship for Illustration and the 2016-2017 Walter Dean Meyers Grant. Jenn enjoys pottery, fermenting homemade kimchi, and drawing foxes in spiffy clothing.
