Juliet Pomés Leiz was born in Barcelona in 1963. She studied Architecture and Fine Arts in Barcelona and Painting in Italy. She is the author, along with Ricardo Feriche, of Barcelona Design Guide, edited by Gustavo Gili. From 1989 until 1992 she designed the covers for the magazine Districte, and later did book covers for publishing houses such as Anagrama and Mondadori, as well as other illustrations for newspapers and magazines. Since 1992, and after a brief but fruitful period in New York, she has alternated her career as an illustrator and a painter, and her work has been exposed in various galleries in Barcelona and Madrid. She is the mother of two children, and motherhood provoked a turn in her career, which added to her talent as an illustrator, has brought her to enter the world of children’s literature.
