Mona is a freelance illustrator and avid pencil fan! She is currently riding bikes in The Netherlands, but she was born and grew up in Bulgaria. She works primarily on children's book illustrations, pattern making, stationery and lots of other things too. Mona is inspired by pine trees, long summer days, woodland creatures and a good folk story. When she's not knee deep in pencil shavings and eraser dust, she enjoys embroidering and baking oat cookies.
