Claudia Gadotti – Designer

I'm an illustrator who love cover's and children's books. I love working in collaboration with the person who hire me.

Overview

Hello, I'm a freelance illustrator, I've been working for the last past 20 years with children's books, cover books, posters, illustrations, and portraits. I have a degree in Fine arts with a major in illustrations from the Academy of Art in San Francisco. I currently live in New Zealand. I have an extensive portfolio of children's book publishing. I love every part of my job, every challenge, the creativity, the publishing world, and try to bring to life the characters in a manuscript.

Claudia was amazing to work with. She came up with a creative idea for the cover of my book. She made adjustment to a character at my request and always checked for my approval. She was timely and professional. Above all she is an extremely talented illustrator. I highly recommend her.
