Illustrator

65 per session - Virtual OK

I work mostly digitally, though I can work also in marker, colored pencil, and fiber art is my choice medium. I’ve been illustrating for just over a year, including my three children’s picture book titles, but I’ve been an active artist for about 9 years. You can view my full portfolio on my website, listed here in my profile, or a good portion of my work on Instagram @daisymoon_illustration

My first book, “Completely Rainbow” won an award last year. I haven’t submitted any others for awards because I’ve been too busy illustrating! Simbi has been a great way to expand my portfolio and help me think outside the box. I can help with illustrating a book, a book cover, infographic, or anything else you have in mind I will at least try! I prefer to do the work first, and if you like the work I have done, I will send the full resolution file. It has seemed to work well so far!

Training & Qualifications


I have self-published 3 children's stories in which I did the illustrations, and I am working on more. My first book won an award in 2016. My illustrations from two of my books are in the 29th annual children’s illustration show in Hayward, CA. I am a teacher by day, artist by night. Literally, I draw while my daughter is sleeping...

Availability & Preferences


Pacific standard time.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

Amy has been very patient with me. She gave me 4 different versions of the design. I ended up choosing two of them and collaborated back and forth bui...lding on her two versions and contributing my own feedback and ideas. She is great at receiving feedback and opening to a collaborative way of doing the design which I think is as important in a designer/illustrator as the design skill itself. And she is very skilled in the design/illustration skill itself too. This is my third time I have hired her, the only one on Simbi I have hired so far. So you can tell I value and trust her work a lot. I will most likely hire her again for future projects too. Thank you, Amy! :)show more

Amy was very patient, responsive and wonderful to work with. She has an eye for detail and went beyond what I had initially asked for, based on the i...nfo she saw in my mind map, which was such a pleasant surprise! :) She made a great illustration out of what I thought might be difficult to work with. Thank you so much, Amy!show more

About Amy Altstatt

I'm a teacher, writer, and illustrator living in Sacramento with my husband and daughter. I just self-published my first three children's books, entitled "Completely Rainbow", “The King’s Beloved Colo...rs”, and “Boswell Foxington & The Secret of the Stars”- all of which can be ordered from your local bookstore or on amazon. My first title won a Royal Dragonfly book Award in 2016. In addition to these titles, I have co-written two titles with my husband which remain unpublished. I am currently working on developing different styles and mastering a certain style for my fourth book. I have a Master’s in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from University of Southern California, and I’ve taught people from over 12 languages backgrounds ranging from 5 years to 82 years of age. I taught in China for a couple years as well. I love all people, all ages. Because I was a teacher and have a Master’s in TESOL, I am also an exceptional editor! My husband and I are both artists and adventurers exploring and finding inspiration one continent at a time. show more
