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!
I live in beautiful British Columbia, in the city of Richmond.
I started out as a product designer in Mexico. I did a masters degree in Italy, and worked in Milan and Rome as an interior and graphic designer. I continued on this path in Mexico, where I also was a college teacher.
I bounced to Northeast England when my husband got a scholarship for his PhD, and then to Canada, where we currently reside.
It was in Britain where I decided to pursue something that I really feel passionate about. As a mom of two young children I also wanted the freedom to work from from home. And that’s how I became an illustrator!
I adore picture books (I have an enormous collection which I pass for my children's personal library).
My preferred media are pen and ink, watercolour and colour pencils, but I also use gouache and pastels.
Thank you for taking the time! I am looking forward to hearing from you!
