Grace Habib was born in the suburbs of Chicago to immigrant parents. Her mum was from Seoul, South Korea and her father is from Beirut, Lebanon. Living with two different ethnic backgrounds, her life was enriched with art, food, and culture. Since she was a little girl she loved to draw animals all the time. Her parents encouraged her to follow her passion in art. From there, she graduated with honors with a BFA Illustration from Columbus College of Art and Design. She worked as a kids greeting card designer at American Greetings for over four years and now she is freelancing. Among many of her projects as an illustrator is Campbell Books' Peekaboo series for babies.
In her free time, she loves to find new places to eat, travel, and find the cutest coffee shops near by. She has two mini dachshunds named Olive and Copper.
