Meet the Artist: Erika Ilumin Wahlberg (she/her)

The children's books I grew up with made me feel like my own complicated realities were understood, and introduced me to worlds where anything was possible--that is exactly the type of impact I want to have with my illustrations.

 

I operate under the belief that stories form a person whether they are from life or purely fictional. Therefore, the stories that I am the most concerned about are those being shared to children as I am driven to create light-hearted, whimsical stories built on hope. 

 

I plan to one day publish my own illustrated stories so others may see themselves represented--as part of the greater narrative of what makes the world beautiful.
