Susie Jaramillo

Susie Jaramillo is an artist, creator, brand builder and mom raising 2 bilingual children. Jaramillo majored in painting and illustration at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and recently left the advertising world after a successful 15+ year career to apply her brand building and storytelling skills to the world of family entertainment and education.

“As a Latina mom exposed to songs and traditions from both the U.S. and my native Venezuela, I’ve had a hard time finding books and apps of the nursery rhymes I grew up with,” says Brooklyn-based author-artist Susie Jaramillo. “In talking to people in both Latino and non-Latino communities, I realized this was missing from bookshelves and digital platforms everywhere.”

To bring to life all the things she loved about her Latino culture, she created Canticos so kids of all ages can enjoy these nursery rhymes and songs. “In addition to promoting bilingual/multilingual learning,” she adds, “we hope the books, apps and videos also promote a sense of community and connect kids, especially Latino kids, to their culture.”
