Artist Features

Meet Gabriela Burin, our lovely new artist! 

Gabriela Burin is an author and illustrator, born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. As a child, she loved to fill out notebooks with drawings and stories, and she loves that this is now her job. Her colorful and cheerful illustrations are full of humour, in which extravagant characters live in the most absurd situations.

Using digital and mixed media, Gabriela has dedicated herself to the field of children’s and editorial illustration for over 20 years. For Gabriela, the best thing about this profession is to be able to create new worlds, never before imagined, and for children to be able to travel through them. She loves sharing the wonderful worlds she's created with her daughter. 

Gabriela's books have been published in Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay, Mexico, the United States, and more. She also teaches professional illustration classes in her illustration workshop, Taller Dos Meninas.

Her books have received various distinctions from international organisations such as Fundación Cuatro Gatos (USA) and the Banco del Libro de Venezuela. Strong in her expertise, her illustrations were selected to participate in the Illustration Exhibition at the Bologna Fair, Bologna, Italy in 2021 and the International Biennial of Illustration in Bratislava, Slovakia in 2023.
