Kerisa Greene is an author-illustrator of children’s books. Born and raised in Southern California Kerisa now lives in Washington, DC with her husband and one-eyed cat Una. She is a first-generation Asian-American who loves her grandma’s cooking and always craves a big bowl of pho.
Kerisa has previously worked as a graphic designer, preschool teacher, and once spent a summer volunteering at a lion conservation center in Zimbabwe. She loves to write and illustrate stories that are full of heart, humor, and whimsy. She especially loves to illustrate stories that bring a smile to children’s faces and is a book that they will want to read over and over again. She loves anything with a good pun or a cute character who you can’t help but love. Kerisa has a soft spot for grumpy and flawed characters who show their sweet side in the end.
Kerisa’s goal is to have a lifetime career as an illustrator of children’s books that both she and others have written. Being a part of a book that inspires a child, makes a difference in someones life, or sparks joy is her favorite part of the job.
