Acamy Schleikorn

Acamy Schleikorn is an illustrator and author from Las Vegas. From a young age, she knew that she wanted to make a difference in a child’s life. Her favorite thing about writing and illustration is that a world can be formed out of nothing. It is very important to Acamy that her work reflects the diverse world that we live in. When people see her work, she wants them to feel beautiful, valued, and encouraged.

Acamy identifies most with the black community and wants to birth stories that reflect the strength and joy they experience on a daily basis. She creates her illustrations digitally making sure to bring aspects of texture and wonder to her work to give it more of a traditional feel. When she isn’t illustrating, she is spending time with her husband and two children laughing and making memories.
