Nina de Polonia is an illustrator born in the Philippines in 1985. She has loved drawing ever since she could hold a pencil. When she’s not illustrating children's books, she enjoys travelling, doing some gardening, and painting with her kids. She is currently living in Brisbane, Australia.
She works digitally using Photoshop and her trusty Cintiq, but the magic starts with a sketch using pencil and paper. She also incorporates lots of textures done in traditional media to achieve a more organic look in her digital pieces. She loves illustrating stories and characters that are cute, playful and quirky.
