- My name is Marina Mauer, and I'm a children's book illustrator and author.

- I was born in Ukraine. Currently, I'm living and working in Germany. I speak English, German, Russian and Ukrainian.

- As a child, I visited an art school in my town for about 5 years. Later I've studied architecture at the Polytechnical College in Czernowitz and at the Polytechnical University in Lemberg. These years of school and study helped me to improve my academic painting skills.

- I always knew that I will be a professional artist. I knew that once I will turn my biggest passion into my job.

- A few years ago, I've started my career as an illustrator. I visit many online and offline courses and workshops, read books, participate in art fairs, competitions and challenges, and collaborate with other creators. My skills, knowledge, and experiences make me a professional illustrator who is open to new ideas and collaborations!

-Currently, I'm working mainly on the book and other illustrative projects, creating courses and guides, exclusive content on Patreon and artworks for Creative Market and Shutterstock.

- I'm a member of the german "Illustratoren Organisation."
