Hanna Konola is an internationally recognized illustrator and artist who lives and works in Helsinki. She has illustrated books, magazines and paper products both in the Nordic countries and Japan. In Konola's illustrations, randomness and sensitivity meet precision. The result is often playful but sensitive, just like her debut picture book The Year of the Wind (Etana Editions, 2016), which received a prestigious BRAW 2018 special mention in Bologna. The book has been translated into English, French, Italian, Korean, Chinese and Spanish.
