Marie G. Rohde grew up in Sweden, surrounded by books, fabric, artists’ materials and a mix of different cultures. She studied architecture and loved imagining and illustrating. She relocated to Barcelona, Spain after becoming spellbound by the culture and vibrant illustration scene there.
After finishing her diploma, Marie started an illustrated blog about the fortunes and misfortunes of finding her way in a foreign city. It gathered a dedicated following in the Spanish-speaking world, and paved the way for Marie’s illustration and print design career.
Some years later, a life of varied studies and interests came together in her first book Planet SOS. This has been published in 14 languages and selected by the United Nations for its book club (Spanish-speaking section) for Sustainable Development.
Where in the World Are You? is Marie’s second book that was inspired by a story that her son invented during the first lockdown in Spain, when time outside the home was limited.
