Victoria Cassanell

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. My debut picture book 'The Grizzly Itch' was published in 2020 by Macmillan, followed by 'Penguin Parcel' in 2021.

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.
