E Komo Mai


I'm a children's book author, illustrator, and part-time butterfly wrangler who enjoys designing origami and paper models for kids.


Meet Roxy and Grogu!

They're my burping studio assistants, and the inspiration for some of my characters. Watch our Procreate (illustration) and origami folding videos here.

Let's Talk Books!

Or art. Or about growing up as a nerd interested in science and nature.

I'm available for school visits and conference presentations.
