Mariana Ikuta studied design in Brazil, illustration in London, and art in New York. Since she was young, she used drawing as a way of expressing herself until she realized that could be a profession. Nowadays she lives in Vancouver working as an illustrator, and she discovered that her true passion is in illustrating picture books. Life can’t be more delightful than when discovering fantastical and incredibly colorful worlds for children.
