Yifat Fishman Illustrations & Thoughts


mandal thumb

Hi and welcome, I am an artist and illustrator based in Texas. In my illustration work I love layering collages, colors and textures. I often draw inspiration from nature, incorporating plants, flowers and leaves in my designs. My preferred paintbrushes are digital watercolor and gouache brushes, painted with Apple Pencil on iPad Pro, then edited in Photoshop.

Watch me draw on my YouTube channel, where I share art process videos, tutorials and short animations.

Originally from Israel, I graduated from Holon Institute of technology with a major in Industrial Design and a Bachelor of Science in Technology Education, and continued to study Fine Art for a couple of years. I’ve worked for a software development company and as a graphic designer. When my son was born I fell in love with the amazing world of children’s books. I’ve been a member of the SCBWI since 2010.

little me in preschool cowboy dance

Funny how things turned up. This is me in the red cowboy hat. My dad took this photo when I was in preschool, dancing in my cowboy costume with my friends at a Purim party. I still remember what the costume felt like and how it smelled. It came with a belt and a handgun that made a real loud Bang! Little did I know then that I will move to the US with my husband and two kids and end up living in Texas among real cowboys. My name is pronounced Yeefaht which means Beauty in Hebrew.
