Juanita is a children’s book and commercial illustrator.
She likes drawing characters and environments in vibrant colors, textured details and emotions to bring people on a journey. Juanita relishes seeing life through the lens of magical realism that is so deeply connected to her Latin American roots.
As a child, Juanita was very fond of bed time stories and recreating with a pencil the images she found on her favorite children’s books. Much of her work now draws inspiration from those same books she enjoyed as a kid.
When she is not illustrating or writing you might find her dancing, singing, learning about astrology or taking a nap under the sun.
