Mariya spins watercolor magic (with Procreate fairy dust) to create picture book and middle-grade illustrations. Intimate look at our relationship with nature, fantasy, and historical non-fiction are her cryptonite.
Her illustrations won a Gold Medal from Independent Publishers Book Awards (IPPY), Best Illustrator Gold Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards, SCBWI Spark Award Honor recipient and were Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Finalist among many others.
She lives in Austin, TX with her husband and two border collies who make sure she is never bored.
