Illustrator’s Biography

Maria is an illustrator and fine artist from Barcelona currently living in Boston with her husband and their three little children. One lucky day, she stumbled on the art in children’s books and fascinated by it decided to become a picture book illustrator herself – to be as close as possible to that magical world.

She is the illustrator of Sparkle Boy (by Lesléa Newman), Maya Papaya (by Susan Middleton Elya), Koala Challah (by Laura Gehl), and others. Maria’s whimsical art often explores the beautiful inner world of kids, the meaningful little things in ordinary days, and she enjoys sneaking quiet hopeful messages in her illustrations. Maria creates her work digitally and in traditional media, often combining both.

When not creating children’s book dummies, she enjoys making crafts with her kids, reading, or cooking. Most of the time doing everything at once 🙂

You can learn more about Maria on her website.
