Encouraged to pursue a career in art by her mother, illustrator @marjan_vafaeian's pictures are inspired by Iranian and Indian miniature paintings, plants, cats, and curly hair. Her journey into illustration was strongly self-driven since she chose not to pursue a degree in art, opting to learn through books and experiential learning instead. Here at #Pathways, we support the idea that each illustrator has a unique journey – that's why we're in the process of selecting a truly diverse cohort of mentees.
