Career & Studies


Illustrating children’s books has always been a dream of mine since I was a child. As an adult, it is a privilege to be able to unleash the imagination and creativity of so many young children by putting an image or picture on a story. I mostly use pastels and watercolour painting – it is a personal choice as one of the most vivid memories I had from my kindergarten years was this book my grandma gave me: it was the story of the Little Match Girl illustrated with some amazing watercolour paintings. 

I see drawing as a way to add emotions to words. As a mother of two young children, I found that adding illustrations was a way to make them learn things faster, read more and be more curious. Would be happy to share this experience and of course recommend titles that fit your children’s interests. Looking forward to talking to you soon!

Mentoring Activities I can provide:

I can help you initiate children to drawing and help bring their interests to books and reading in general. If you are looking for a career in this field (comic book, illustrating for books), I can help you out as well.
