✷ ILIANA ✷

Hey, y'all it's ya favorite Mija! I’m a Queer Latinx Illustrator currently based in Houston. Born and raised in the San Fernando Valley. I'm a mother, pug whisperer, and part-time Diosa. I create bold and bright art centering on self-love, mental health, and celebrating Black and Brown bodies.

I created GrowMija as a love letter to my youngest sister, Chachis, to show her art that looked like her and to let her know how amazing she is. My message is simple:

MIJX YOU ARE WORTHY

Worthy of love, worthy of respect, worthy of so much of what this world has to offer.
