Hello! I’m Paula Franco and I’m a children’s book illustrator living in Rosario, Argentina.

I studied Illustration & Graphic Design at  Instituto Superior Comunicación Visual (ISCV Fundación Rosario Diseño).  After graduating, I lived in the Republic of San Marino for two years where  I worked as an illustrator and graphic designer until I decided to follow  my true passion, children’s book illustration.

I signed with my agent in 2011 and have been working with many wonderful publishers in the United States, Europe, and South America ever since.

My work has reached number 7 in the New York Times Children’s Best Seller list.

I work from my studio office at home along side my four lovely mixed-breed rescue dogs. They are my noisy office assistants!
