Kipp Sienna Hopkins
Kipp, a writer and illustrator, lives in a small town in Maine. She is the author of four children's books and the first volume of a graphic novel.
Growing up on an oyster farm in the Alaskan bush, Kipp was raised around home cooked meals and plenty of fresh seafood. A lover of Japanese food and culture, Kipp's Washoku Project is a labor of love.
In 2017, Kipp was invited to film an episode of Who Wants to Come to Japan, and achieved a life long dream by visiting that country.
When at home you can find Kipp painting, writing, reading, listening to audiobooks and making hats for her cat.
