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.
