Marion Arbona - Illustrator

Marion was born in France in the early eighties. When she was a child, her dream was to make Plasticine figures for a living, but she gradually turned toward drawing. After obtaining an animation film diploma from the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, Marion settled in Montreal, Canada. Thanks to good winter boots, she endures the cold weather and devotes herself to illustration. She loves animals (except spiders and centipedes), nature (except mud) and shoes (except running shoes).

Marion has published more than thirty children's books, and her work has been rewarded in several international competitions. Gouache and pencil are her preferred mediums for creating her colorful illustrations.
