ABOUT JUANA MARTINEZ-NEAL
Hi there! I’m Juana and I’m a children’s illustrator.
I was born in Lima, the capital of Peru. I’ve been illustrating for children since I was 16.
Education is a must and I attended the best art school ever, Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru – School of Fine Arts. After 3 years of a crazy 8-to-8 schedule, I decided to give L.A. a “test drive.” I have lived in the US ever since.
I now live and work in Scottsdale, Arizona. I’m represented by Stefanie Von Borstel of Full Circle Literary.
