Illustrator Gallery - Nina Mata
I grew up as a typical latchkey kid from Queens, New York. My family emigrated from the Philippines when I was 6 years old. Because my parents worked and went to night school, I spent a lot (like a whole lot) of time drawing. My after school activities usually involved watching Bob Ross, Reading Rainbow and finding adventure in books.I studied commercial arts in the High School of Art & Design and studied Illustration at The Fashion Institute of Technology of NY.I now create work for trade and educational publishing as well as kids apps. I try my very best to represent the beauty and diversity of our world.
I currently live in New Jersey with my husband Aaron, our 3 yr old daughter and Tabi, the cat.
I am proudly represented by Christina Tugeau & Christy Ewers of CATugeau Artist Agency.
