ABOUT DIANA TOLEDANO

  • DIANA TOLEDANO is a Pisces with curly hair, glasses, and a bit of an accent. 

    Diana (Dee-Anna) grew up in Spain, where she studied Art History and Illustration. Now she lives in San Francisco with her husband, a lazy cat and a crazy kitten.

    Diana works full time writing and illustrating children’s books. Her books have been published in five languages, six countries and four continents; and her products have been sold in retail stores all over the world. Most recently she illustrated the picture book One Snowy Dayand the chapter book series Polly Diamond. 

    Diana is taking a break from working as a museum educator, but she still teaches workshops for kids and adults. She loves teaching as much as she loves drawing!

    Diana is represented by Teresa Kietlinski at Bookmark Literary.

ARTIST STATEMENT

  • Life is a crazy, beautiful and joyful adventure. I want my art to reflect how there is something extraordinary to be found in every single day. I want to make room for vulnerability, sadness and melancholy, while encouraging wonder and hope. 

    I love experimenting and playing with traditional techniques. I usually work with my hands and use the computer to do some final adjustments. I adore patterns, textures and details.
