ABOUT OLGA HERRERA

  • Olga M. Herrera

    Born in Miami Florida in 1974. At a young age she moved with
    her family to Ecuador, South America, where she lived for a decade. Upon her
    return to the United States her love for painting, sculpting and illustration
    guided her educational pursuits. She attended the Ringling College of Art and
    Design in Sarasota Florida, where she earned her Bachelors of Fine Arts with a
    major in Illustration. In 2003 her husband’s military career brought her to
    Maryland where she now lives with her Husband and their two children. Her
    career as a published illustrator of children’s art inspired the desire to also write.  Future endeavours will include publishing her own children’s books. 


ARTIST STATEMENT

  • When you do what you love, you love what you do!  I absolutely love visual storytelling – from the setting of a scene, to the characters themselves. Capturing a moment and an emotion in a single illustration.  I want children to look at my work and go back to it to discover something new every time.
