Since migrating to the USA from Mexico in 1994, Yuyi Morales has created some of the most celebrated Latino works for children’s books.
She is a three-time winner of the Pura Belpre Medal and a two-time recipient of the Tomas Rivera Award for her illustrations. Asked about her work Yuyi says, “I strive to capture the incredible beauty of the every day forms using textures and colors as another way to reveal the heart of the story. I also pursue glow and luminosity with resolve. If I could ask for a talent, it would be to become a color genius.”
