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.
