María Coco

María Coco is a Mexican author and illustrator. After combining her design career with her love for exploring the world, she decided to follow her heart and earned a master’s degree in children’s book illustration at Cambridge School of Art.

She loves creating simple and bold characters and very much enjoys the textures, limited color palettes, overlaps and unexpected results of printmaking.

Her work has won some international awards and recognitions.

Being surrounded by nature with her little family is her happy place.

She has published in Spain two books with Grupo SM, ‘Coco cambia de casa’ (author-illustrator) and ‘La pelota roja’ (illustrator).

María Coco will have her debut in the US very soon with ‘Dogs Love Books, Too’ followed by ‘Cats Love Books, Too’ both to be published by Bloomsbury.
