Erika Ilumin Wahlberg



    Like most kids growing up, I loved drawing. The only difference is that I never stopped the older I got- especially after discovering that there was a job for the person who created the art for the children’s books I loved: illustrator! I am currently developing a body of illustrative work with a focus on visual storytelling while attending California College of the Arts.

   One of my fundamental beliefs is that we are more alike than we are different, that there is something beautiful in what makes us connected to one another. What I create as an illustrator is strongly tied to my own experiences, in the hope that others can relate too.
