H e l l o . . .
My name is Hala Tahboub. I illustrate and write stories.
I started my creative journey as an architect and interior designer and I continued to work in design related disciplines until I decided to focus on what I've always wanted to do, and that is to express myself through illustration and writing.
I am a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI). In 2019, I won The Storyteller Award for Illustration, awarded by the SCBWI Canada East chapter, ‘for an exceptional portfolio that exemplifies visual storytelling’. In 2020, I was the SCBWI's December Featured Illustrator.
I believe in kindness, coffee, chocolate and in the immense power of stories.
I live in Montreal.
