Isabel Roxas is an illustrator, designer and avid reader.

She was born in Manila, Philippines, was raised on luscious mangoes, old wives’ tales, and monsoon moons. She now works in a former pencil factory in Brooklyn where she writes and illustrates stories, designs books and creates small objects in clay and resin.

She has illustrated several books for young readers, including Goodnight Songs by Margaret Wise Brown (Sterling Books, 2014), and Day at the Market by May Tobias-Papa (Adarna House, 2008), winner of the Philippine National Book Award.

Isabel is a frequent contributor to Babybug and Ladybug Magazine. Her work has been recognized by American Illustration, HOW Magazine and 3x3 Magazine of Contemporary Illustration.

A recent body of work dubbed “Saturday Fun Machine” is on exhibit at Silverlens Galleries in Manila until April 24, 2016. The show is an exploration of memories and the act of remembering. Isabel has had four solo exhibitions at Silverlens since 2010.

Isabel is also the Creative Director of Owen James Gallery in Greenpoint—a contemporary art gallery that showcases the interweaving histories of America, Asia and Europe, with a special focus on Southeast Asia.
Her latest picture book, Let Me Finish! written by Minh Lê (Disney-Hyperion) will be in bookstores starting June 7th, 2016.
