Violeta is a New Zealand-based Illustrator and Graphic designer. She has illustrated numerous published children’s books for authors all over the world and brought their stories to life with her imaginative and colourful illustrations. With paint brushes as magic wands, she is exploring her newfound love for watercolours as she continues to digitally conjure up fantastic things with Adobe Creative Cloud, Paint Tool Sai, and Krita.
Violeta has been in the publishing industry for ten years. She began her career as a Graphic Artist and Creative Assistant for FORWARD Publications in 2008. Later on, she got promoted to Creative Director who spearheads the conceptualization for the FORWARD Magazine with the Editorial Board and her Creative Team. For the love of art, she pursued her interest in illustration in 2011 and started working as a Children’s Book Illustrator for Author Solutions Inc. along with other publishing companies. Her creativity and persistence opened up many opportunities to get her illustrations published under her maiden name Violeta Honasan.
Today, Violeta is happily married to a man who shares the same interest in visual arts. They made a home in Auckland where there’s an abundance of culture, art, nature and great food. On her down time she enjoys spending time with her husband watching movies, TV series and animated films, playing video games, and nerding-out in general. Sometimes she just secretly stares at their neighbour’s dogs. She also likes visiting places where she can go dog-watching while daydreaming about the day she can finally adopt a Long Haired Dachshund or a Corgi.
