Children's books a̶d̶d̶i̶c̶t̶ freelance illustrator. I have a background in visual arts and use it in illustration to forge a rich visual world and give a story its best visual outcome.
I have illustrated over 20 picture books for the in-print Romanian market. Several of them have been selected in international competitions, and/or have won awards in national competitions.
I have also passionately drawn many book covers and have a strong interest in decorative pattern design.
I am always experimenting new techniques, using anything from gouache to lino-cut or colored pencils, and use Photoshop to set the final composition right.
I love creating engaging illustrations. Easy going and highly experienced, I will put all my experience to work to tell your story in a strong and unique way.cristianaradu.com
