Maine Diaz was born in La Plata, Argentina, and grew up drawing and painting. Cartoons captured her imagination early on, and she quickly realized she wanted to be an animator. At the age of sixteen, she started animating, working on films like Patoruzito and El Arca (Patagonik Film Group, Argentina). Simultaneously, she enrolled in audiovisual communication at Universidad Nacional de La Plata (UNLP). Soon after, she started illustrating for children’s books. Currently, Maine lives in a tiny green house, where she spends time with her two cats, Chula and Lola.
