Today on Paws 4 Thought I’m happy to welcome illustrator, Tina Wijesiri. Tina created the awesome pictures for my new picture book, Esmeralda Grunch and the Red Tulip.
- Tell us a little about yourself, Tina.
I’m Tina Wijesiri. I live in Sri Lanka and I’m 27 years old. I love drawing.
- When did you start drawing?
I’ve liked to draw since I was a kid.
- What is your favorite thing to draw?
I like to draw every kind of thing and improve my skills.
- Do you prefer working on the computer or by hand?
I love both. But by hand is easier. (The pictures that Tina created for Esmeralda Grunch were hand drawn with watercolors. DMK)
- What’s your favorite food?
Rice and curries, pizza, and burgers.
- Tell us a little bit about Sri Lanka?
Sri Lanka is in the Indian Ocean. It’s an island and a tropical country. We speaks Sinhala, Tamil, and English. Our main religion is Buddhism, but there are also Hindus, Muslims, Christians and Catholics. Sri Lanka has lots of natural beauty and a great history.
- Do you have any pets?
Yes, I have a cat. (Aw – we like kitties here at Paws 4 Thought, DMK)
- What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re not drawing?
I like to write to my pen pals, and enjoy reading and writing stories.
