Jacinta is an autistic illustrator and writer. She loves to use traditional and digital media to make pictures of people and animals, placing special emphasis on expression and gesture.
Jacinta is Welsh and Chinese, and feels that her multicultural upbringing and neurodivergence enable her to be quick to find common ground with people from different backgrounds. She believes that storytelling is a privilege and responsibility, and hopes to make books that delight, enlarging children’s worlds while shortening divides. A few of her favourite illustrators include Quentin Blake, Catherine Rayner, and Anthony Browne.
