Ohn Mar Win is an illustrator and surface designer for over 20 years. Originally from Burma she now lives in the UK. It took her quite a while to read and write English so she just drew and painted and just kept drawing and painting because it was much easier than verbs. Then aged 14, she realised people can get paid to draw: how amazing was that? She devised plan that involved being great with paints, brushes and pencils and stacks of paper. After graduating with a degree in Advertising and Design a rather long time ago she pursued a editorial illustration career with a large helping of greetings cards whilst freelancing at Tigerprint. Ohn Mar have only returned to full time illustration in the last three years after taking a extended break to look after her kids.
