Joanna (Asia) Stopyra

Asia is a children's book illustrator and animator based in the San Francisco Bay Area in California. She grew up in Poland, where her childhood was filled with a whimsical blend of myths, legends, and a deep connection to nature that continues to inspire her art.  During her six years working at Osmo, Asia created captivating stories and characters through both illustration and animation. Her most recent project was Osmo's Reading Adventure, which aimed to foster a love for reading in kids. As an Art Director, she sprinkled her unique style onto the project, breathing life into characters and creating an experience that sparks both imagination and learning in equal measure. When she's not illustrating, Asia enjoys practicing ceramics, foraging for mushrooms, or going outdoors with her daughter.
