Victoria Cassanell, Author

Hello, Iʼm Victoria. I grew up and currently live in Yorkshire. In 2014 I graduated with a First Class Hons degree in Illustration from the Hull School of Art and Design. For my final project I created a picture book, which lead me to embark on the MA Childrenʼs Book Illustration course at the Cambridge School of Art, from which I have recently graduated.

I love drawing characters then creating stories and settings for them to live in.

My work is mainly hand-drawn, using watercolour, coloured pencils and mono-print textures, combined together in Photoshop.

My work is inspired by animals and nature and I love spending time in the Lake District.
