Yuliya Pieletskaya was born in Odessa, Ukraine but spent the latter half of her childhood in Upstate NY. She has been a freelance illustrator, surface and motion designer for the past 6 years and has worked with clients such as Cartoon Network and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Like many artists, she finds nature and animals a cherished source of inspiration. She currently lives in Chicago, IL with her husband and two bunnies Marnie and Ham who also often inspire her work. Last year her very first illustrated children's book, The Climbing Tree, written by John Stith, was published by POW! Kids Books.
