born to be creative.
Naava is an illustrator with a passion for creating art about modern family life. Her hand-drawn style captures a balance of sentimental, funny and on-trend themes inspired by parenthood and childhood.
Most recently, Naava's illustrations of new mothers were used across branding and packaging for Milk Snob, makers of products for the modern parent. Her art has been featured on social media by Pottery Barn Kids, Munchkin, Kardashian Kids and Huffington Post. One of her drawings is in the private collection of Rachel Zoe, celebrity stylist. In the world of publishing, her hand-lettering was used on the cover of the parenting book, Ramshackle Glam, published by Running Press.
After receiving her B.F.A from Alfred University, Naava worked as a Graphic Designer and Producer, honing her skills as a content creator. With clients including PBS and Scholastic, Naava specialized in educational media. She then spent many years teaching K-12 art in NJ and NYC.
Naava now happily lives and draws in Westchester, NY. She is in love with her two terrific kids, her wonderful husband, and Shea, the most loyal dog ever.
