YUKO 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 and words led her down the path of children’s picture-book illustrating and storytelling. Yuko likes to create her artwork quickly and instinctively using digital tools without preliminary pencil sketches. She prefers to see the vague images in her mind take shape on screen, where they begin to create stories of their own. Her debut picture book is forthcoming from Holiday House. Yuko currently lives and works in New York. Visit Yuko at www.yukokatakawa.com.
