Jayrisa L. Gómez, is an artist born and in the Dominican Republic. With a passion for the arts at an early age, she took several advertising courses at the Universidad Autónoma de Santo Domingo (UASD) and holds a bachelor's degree in Graphic Arts from ITESA.
It was not until 2015, after completing a course in Altos de Chavón, that she discovered her true passion: illustration. She has since worked for a number of clients between the Dominican Republic and the United States, and finds constant inspiration in the illustrations of children's books and stories about fantasy and magic. My First Heroes is her first series with Campbell Books.
