Yuko Katakawa

yuko_katakawa_photoYUKO KATAKAWA is a Japanese-born illustrator who studied art at an early age then changed her focus to Japanese Classic Literature in college. After moving to the U.S., her love for art resurfaced and led her down the path of children’s picture book illustrating. Yuko creates her artwork fast and instinctively using only digital tools. She enjoys seeing the vague images in her mind take shape onscreen where lines and squiggles can become magical things. She currently works and lives in New York. Visit Yuko at www.yukokatakawa.com.
