Nyrryl Cadiz is a Filipina illustrator who was born and raised in small but sunny Bayawan City, Philippines. Nyrryl loved art, reading fairytales, and making up stories since she was a girl. However, no one in her small town did it as a profession so she never thought she could make it her “real” job. During college, she discovered the world of illustration and how it was more than possible to have a career in. Nyrryl then began her journey to learn the craft by teaching herself, watching videos, and joining SVSLearn. She graduated last March 2018 with a degree in Civil Engineering but she chose to go fulltime into illustration.
Nyrryl is fond of sharing Filipino folktales and culture. She loves illustrating warm and colorful scenes but does not shy away from somber tones as well.
She’s currently living in her hometown where she enjoys biking along the beach, cooking, and sipping iced teas while she paints.
