Illustrator Lia Visirin
Lia was born in a small town in Transylvania, Romania, surrounded by mountains and castles. She spent most of her childhood outside in the garden, playing with farm animals and pets and drawing on everything she could. Using both traditional and digital mediums, her favourite things to draw are characters with quirky personalities, plants, birds, old objects, cats and foxes. Inspired by nature, old photographs and childhood memories, Lia tends to use an earthy colour palette. She has studied art since high school and after graduating in art and design at the University of Cluj-Napoca, she started working with local printing houses on children's books and magazine publications.
