Meet Alina Manolache

After spending a decade building a career in an unrelated field, Alina decided to leave it all behind and pursue her dream of becoming a children’s book illustrator, hoping to spread joy and positivity to younger and older readers alike. Since a traditional art education was out of reach, Alina relied on her self-drive to develop the abilities needed to express on the page the feelings and stories she dreamed of sharing with others. Alina’s love for fairy tales, watercolor painting, and animals is readily apparent in her first book “Little Red is making friends”, which she wrote, illustrated, and self published. In her debut work, the visually stunning illustrations combined with her storytelling evoke undeniable feelings of joy and compassion. Alina brings ideas to life from her home in Romania where she lives with her husband, and if she’s not writing or illustrating, she’s reading mystery and fantasy novels.
