Hello! I’m Nyrryl Cadiz.
My name is read as “Neryl”...
I am a Filipino children’s book illustrator born and raised in small but sunny Bayawan City, Philippines.
I always enjoyed art since I was a kid but since no one I knew did it as a career, I always assumed it wasn’t a real job. It was only during college when I got into online freelancing and eventually discovered the illustration world that I realized my calling as an Illustrator.
I graduated last March 2018 with a degree in Civil Engineering but I now work full time in illustration. I’m currently living in my hometown where I enjoy biking along the beach, cooking, and sipping iced teas while I paint.
