My name is Ewa and I create illustrations.
I sketch, paint, draw, cut up, tear up, peel off and glue back again.
I create illustrations with watercolors, acrylics, crayons, pencils
... with whatever I can and wherever I can. To tell stories.
I illustrate books for children, games, educational activities ...
I work for publishing houses, individual writers and sometimes for myself
for pure pleasure.
I graduated in Interior Architecture from the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan, Poland. I still design interiors, and my favorite are children's rooms - here, as in illustrations - I can tell stories.
I also studied Film Animation for a year at the Academy of Fine Arts in Croatia. I finished Illustration Course at the Open Collage of Arts. For several years I worked as a graphic designer and art director in advertising agencies in the UK.
How did I start to illustrate?
I made my first illustrated book when I was 5 years old. Years ahead later, I got proposal to illustrate educational books for UNICEF. And you know what? I wanted to refuse ... luckily I did not, because apart from interesting work I discovered my passion.
I won numerous awards for my illustrations but the one I like most is from Cat Writer's Association in USA, for the book 'I Want a Cat: My Opinion Essay' by Darcy Pattison.
