Hello, Thanks for checking out my site. My name is Ramya and I go by pen name R.G. Spaulding. I am working to establish my second career as an Author/Illustrator after being an engineer for a very long time. I have always loved art and it would be a dream come true to illustrate and write picture books and take young minds on an adventure.
I live in Silicon Valley with my wonderful husband and 2 teenage daughters and 2 adorable 4 legged boys who keep me very busy and always supply me with ample writing materials.
To improve my craft of writing and illustrating, I have joined SCBWI and 12x12challenge. I also attend many online webinars hosted by SCBWI and have enrolled in Picture book Summit and Susana Hills’s Making picture book magic class. I am also a subscriber at SVSLearn.com to improve my illustration techniques. I highly recommend all these classes. I love 12×12 for the many educational opportunities for new authors and excellent online critiques and the very active facebook community. My wonderful critique groups help me polish my craft and help me get better.
