Art evokes emotion. It also makes us think. AR Jung is a children’s book author and illustrator and her work is about empowering children. Her focus is on empowerment through self esteem building and creativity as an outlet for fostering joy and inner strength in kids.

A.R. is a kid at heart, but loves the subversive. She is very into the eclectic and the whimsical, as long as it has an element of #STEM running through it.

A.R. likes the cumulative outcome of her stories to = love, joy & empowerment. She is the author of the Velveteen Rabbit retelling, THE GIRL BEHIND THE MAGIC (2019) and lives in Houston with her husband, daughter and two rescues. She is a returned Peace Corps volunteer from Uzbekistan, Central Asia, where she learned Russian as a second language, and to date has forgotten most of it.
