My name is Jennifer Dahbura freelance illustrator, I was born in El Salvador, in a small but beautiful city called Santa Ana. I have always been in love with drawing since I was a little girl, I remember that I used to draw portraits of all my mom’s friends, also my aunts. That was my first connection with the female body drawing. Also I was always fascinated by myths, legends, and folktales. One of the principal things that inspires me is music. It has a big impact on me, a lot of sounds that play with my feelings, quotes that I cannot take out of my head. I see my work as a tribute to the ones who are around me also right now i'm working on my own brand.
