About

Who Am I 

My name is Adua Hernandez, I was born in Venezuela in 1992, and I have been painting my entire life. I painted my first murals when I was two and three years old, those were not my mother's favorites but I grew up and I improved my painting skills, I studied illustration in the Instituto de Diseño de Caracas. I  graduated in 2013 and since then, I've been painting and having so much fun exploring new styles and techniques.  But who am I? How do I define myself? people say that your environment defines who you are, but it was not my case. Due to my country situation I grew up shut-in my house which was a good thing, because I read a lot of books, I drew, I painted and practiced music, all these things turned my reality into a fantasy world: that definitely shaped my personality and it was the reason to study illustration so I would never be far from that world.


About the book

Yara is an ancient myth that dates back prior the arrival of Cristopher Columbus to Venezuela. It's about a chief's daughter who has green eyes just like the river water. The chief is forced to hid her because those eyes were a bad omen for the tribe, they wanted to sacrifice her to the River God. As she grows older, she meet the River God and he granted her power to protect the nature.

I wanted to create my very own edition of it, combining what I've learned of children books, my own love of art and drawing.

The book will be 16 pages of story and colorful visually textured illustration and it will look like this
