Autumn Heigle - Marketing Coordinator
The Oklahoma City Zoo’s program, Read for Adventure, 2020. 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!

Nadia was a pleasure to work with as a first time children's book author, she took the time to understand the vision for the project and was timely in responding to feedback and requests for meetings as needed. I would gladly work with her again if the opportunity arises!
