Angela Dominguez (she/her)
“The most rewarding part about being an author is when I get to meet my audience. Nothing beats seeing a reader, ecstatic knowing that we share the same experiences and that their story is worth telling.”
Angela Dominguez was born in Mexico City and grew up in the great state of Texas. She now resides on the east coast with her boyfriend and their petite dog, Petunia.
She is the author and illustrator of several books for children and a two-time Pura Belpré Illustration Honoree. Her debut middle grade novel, Stella Díaz Has Something to Say, was a New York Public Library and a Chicago Public Library pick for Best Books for Kids, winner of SCBWI Sid Fleischman Award, an ALA Notable, and A Global Read Aloud Choice. Her upcoming books include Stella Díaz to the Rescue, the fourth in the series, Tengo Hambre/I’m Hungry, and Just Help! written by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor and illustrated by Angela. When she is not in her studio or visiting schools, she teaches illustration at the Academy of Art University, which honored her with their Distinguished Alumni Award in 2013.
In her spare time, she can be found watching competitive cooking shows and dreaming about her next outdoor adventure. As a child, she loved reading books and making a mess creating pictures. She’s delighted to still be doing both.
