                            I'm Elia Velasquez Murray! I am a California-based illustrator and art director living on the sunny side of the Bay with my extra-tall husband, the best dog (Banjo), and two cats with exact opposite personalities (Bugz and Blue). 

I was extraordinarily fortunate to be encouraged from a very young age to pursue the joy of art. Both my parents have had creative careers and I didn't fall far from the tree. There was a brief moment when I attempted to rebel from my artistic family in college (as one does) and seek a "practical career"  but I quickly realized that the practical way forward for me was art.


Thus began my passion for illustrated storytelling.
