Udayana Lugo

Hello! My name is Udayana. Now, I'm going to pull a Hermione and describe phonetically how it sounds:


Don't feel bad, I have been doing this since I first went to preschool.

Speaking of, my earliest memories from preschool all involve drawing, painting and attempts at making tiny books.

I studied industrial design in Mexico and Italy. I also worked as a product, interior and graphic designer both in Italy and Mexico.

Having two young children, and moving first to Britain, and then to Canada made me look for some occupation that I truly felt passionate about, and also that I could do from home, wherever that is.

What I love most are children's books (I have an enormous collection which I pass for my children's personal library), but I recently discovered the home decor and editorial markets.

My preferred media are pen and ink, watercolour and colour pencils. I have recently started to experiment with gouache and pastels, and I also rely on technology to put together my artwork.
