Isabel Muñoz

Isabel Muñoz was born and raised in a small town in Spain. As a child, she loved to draw and paint, and she went on to study fine arts and become an illustrator. Isabel loves to look at children’s books and search the colorful illustrations to find the tiniest details. She’s constantly looking for fresh ideas to draw, so you’ll probably find her sketching something new while she’s enjoying a cup of tea.
