Yasemin Sakar is an illustrator from Turkey, now living in Toronto.
Graduated from Üsküdar American Academy and studied Visual Communication Design at Sabanci University.
After Yasemin was done with school, she followed her childhood dream and spent almost a year in France to learn patisserie at Ecole Nationale Supérieure de la Pâtisserie. She learned how to handle the strict French chefs and make amazing chocolate macarons. Even though she didn't pursue as a chef, this adventure became a great inspiration for her children's book.
Her debut picture book as author & illustrator was published in 2019. She loves illustrating and designing for children as creating a fun and joyful environment for them is her passion. She's been working in textile, home decor and kid's literature as a freelancer.
Currently lives in Toronto with her husband and their ginger cat Tarzan.
Her superpower is napping anywhere, anytime.
