About the Instructor

Ohn Mar Win

Ware, United Kingdom

Ohn Mar is a professional illustrator based in England. When she arrived in the United Kingdom from Burma as a child, it took her a while to learn to read and write English, but art was a universal language. Her focus on drawing and painting intensified when, as a teenager, she discovered that illustrating could become a career. Her plan: become great with paints, brushes, pencils, and stacks of paper. It worked—she graduated with a degree in Advertising and Design, created greeting cards, and then pursued a career in editorial illustration. Three years ago, she returned to full-time illustration after taking a break to be with her two small children.
