Acamy Schleikorn was raised in Las Vegas and started creating art from a very young age. She always knew that she wanted to do something to make a difference in a child’s life. After exploring hand lettering and digital illustration, she discovered the magical world of children’s books. She is passionate about creating meaningful stories and illustrations that children can identify with, especially those that are underrepresented. Acamy wants to tell stories that instill hope, spark joy, and inspire creativity. It’s a success in her eyes when a child can see themselves and connect with the characters and stories she brings to life. She is inspired by nature and people who persevere through hardships. When she isn’t illustrating or writing, she is spending time with her husband and children. She also loves playing guitar and going on adventures.
