Rebecca Jordan-Glum is a Los Angeles based artist, author/illustrator and designer. She grew up in the heart of the Los Angeles melting pot, eating latkes and tabbouleh and sushi and tamales; dressing like a boy or in chinese silk pajamas; being called habiba and mija; wearing her hair in cornrows or a mullet or shorn, and using bad words in too many languages to count.
She has a BFA in Communication Design from Pratt Institute in New York where she graduated with the Illustration Department's highest award for Outstanding Achievement in Illustration. Her first children's picture book, A Fairy Tale, is the recipient of a 2015 Gold Mom's Choice Award and was featured by Tinkerlab. She regularly exhibits her work in galleries across the United States and in 2016, her work was selected by Kspace Contemporary for inclusion in the public Loteria! mural made possible by the National Endowment for the Arts. Other recent projects include creating the artwork for the Amazon Studios film An American Girl Story: MaryEllen 1955 and an upcoming group exhibition at the Andrew Edlin Gallery. Rebecca is represented by Erica Rand Silverman of Stimola Literary Studio.
