Bori is an illustrator and art educator who draws inspiration from her Hungarian roots and the natural world. She captures a whimsical style that uses an imaginative mix of tactile texture and found material. Bori creates imperfectly beautiful illustrations that capture the simpler moments in life.

In her educational practice, she loves to help students build off their personal interests and push them out of their comfort zones through a student-led approach.

This series of anatomical posters educates young audiences about the human body’s inner workings. I wanted to represent each body part with an engaging texture that will keep children entertained and engaged with the subject.
