My passion for illustration goes all the way back to my childhood years when my enthusiastic urge to create and doodle was nurtured by family and educators since kindergarten, mostly through drawing, painting and collage. I even had a phase where the stairs and bedroom walls were my canvas (all this of course, when my parents weren't looking, ahah)!
I've graduated with a BA in Communication Design and since then I've illustrated both educational and picture books, children's magazines, edible gifts, created logos for small businesses/creative individuals and had the opportunity to collaborate with amazing people on all sorts of projects.
I spend my days creating for children's books and market, as well as, paper & gift products like greeting cards, chocolates and other creative projects. Most of my inspiration comes from nature and my everyday life, but it mainly originates from the ordinary and the imaginary. Using both traditional and digital ends, my work aims to inspire joy and creativity on both kids and kids at heart, while telling a small story on each detail.
