About

Cristiana Radu is a passionate free-lance illustrator based in Bucharest. She loves to illustrate children’s books, but also does editorial illustration and visual identities. She enjoys drawing as a way of exploring stories, especially those deriving from the lives of children today and also those with their source in myth and folklore. She studied painting at the National University of Arts in Bucharest, and received an M.A. in Visual Art in 2006.

From time to time she holds workshops on book illustration and visual arts for children of all ages.
