ABOUT YUKO KATAKAWA
Yuko Katakawa is a Japanese-born illustrator who studied art at an early
age then later focused on Japanese Classic Literature in college. After
moving to the U.S., her love for art and words led her down the path of
children’s picture book illustrating. Yuko likes to create her artwork
fast and instinctively using digital tools. She usually draws without
preliminary sketches. Yuko prefers to see the vague images in her mind
to take shape on screen where they begin to create stories of their own.
She currently works and lives in New York.
