The Oklahoma City Zoo’s program, Read for Adventure, promotes literacy while making the Zoo accessible to Oklahomans. In 2020, the Zoo produced a new book for the program, Juniper’s Butterfly Garden, which educates readers on the importance of conserving native pollinators, particularly the monarch butterfly. Nadia Ronquillo’s illustration style was a perfect fit for the project. Bold imagery and bright colors brought the story’s whimsical characters to life on every page. Nadia was able to take the initial direction for the illustrations and provide creative solutions. She was responsive and able to meet all project deadlines. If you’re looking for a professional, imaginative illustrator, Nadia will not disappoint!
