ABOUT RENEE KURILLA

  • Hi there! Here’s a little bit about me:

    I have illustrated many books for kids including ORANGUTANKA: A STORY IN POEMS by Margarita Engle (Holt), CHICKS RULE! by Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen (Abrams), the ADA LACE series by Emily Calandrelli (Simon & Schuster), and RIGHT THIS VERY MINUTE by Lisl Detlefsen (Feeding Minds Press).

    I have a BFA in Illustration and a Diploma in Graphic Design from Lesley University College of Art and Design. Before transitioning to a full time freelance career in children’s books, I was a lead artist at FableVision Studios for nearly 10 years.  

    I love drawing nature, animals, and working on projects that require a little bit of research.

    I currently live just south of Boston with my illustrator husband Keith Zoo, our fluffy orange cat Timmy, and our daughter Zoey.
