Mirka charms everyone with her quirky animal characters. Traditionally trained in art (MFA in 2006), she has been working as a printmaker for 20 years. Her debut illustrated book, Four Otters Toboggan: An Animal Counting Book, came out in March 2019, her second book is scheduled to publish in February 2020, and her third, HARMONY HUMBOLT - PERFECT PETS QUEEN will be published by Clear Fork Publishing in 2020. Mirka won the Illustrator Showcase award at the regional SCBWI Conference in Bryan/College Station in 2017.
Mirka loves to illustrate animals and nature. Creating quirky characters, and adding those details that create additional layers to a story are her favorite parts of illustrating. She is comfortable using traditional media, like watercolors and pencils, and digital applications like Photoshop and Procreate.
When not in the studio, Mirka enjoys exploring the outdoors with her children, trips to the library and exploring new books.
