ABOUT MARAL SASSOUNI

  • I’ve been an illustrator for over 20 years, but in the last 5 years my focus turned to children’s publishing. Winner of the SCBWI Portfolio Showcase Grand Prize in 2013, I am now happily creating picture books.  My debut was The Green Umbrella (NorthSouth Books, 2017, written by Jackie Kramer)/ There are more in the pipeline, so stay tuned…

    My work has also been recognized / awarded by: the Society of Illustrators NY, the Society of Illustrators LA, 3×3 Children’s Show (2012, 2013, 2014, with distinguished merit), and by NAMI Books /IBBY (2013), among others.


    I’m represented by Jennifer Rofé of Andrea Brown Literary Agency.
