Elena Stowell

Elena Stowell is an author, science teacher, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioner. When she is writing and illustrating, Elena can be found at a table with a real #2 pencil and her favorite pair of scissors buried in paper scraps, dried paint, glue-sticks, broken toothpicks, and half-empty coffee cups. “Working in collage puts me in my happy place, which is pretty messy.”

Elena is the award-winning author of Flowing with the Go: A Jiu-Jitsu Journey of the Soul. She is co-founder of the non-profit Carly Stowell Foundation and director of the JamminBJJ Give the Gift of a Gi program. Her volunteer work helps make sports and music participation affordable and accessible to children and adults around the world. You can follow Elena through her website at www.elenastowell.com.
