  BIO  
 
DURGA YAEL BERNHARD was raised in New York's Hudson Valley and began painting at the age of 13. She is the illustrator of numerous children's books, including fiction and non-fiction, natural science titles and multicultural folktales. Also a dancer and percussionist, Durga brings a variety of influences to her work, including a strong grounding in rhythm and design, and a deep love of African culture, Eastern religion, and the natural world. Her experience mothering three children has also shaped some of Durga's most notable works. Most of Durga's artwork is painted in gouache.
