Izabela Ciesinska – Designer

Award-winning and bestselling children's illustrator. I can design and illustrate your picture book :)

Overview

My name is Izabela, and I am an award-winning children’s book illustrator and bestselling children’s author. Passionate about children’s literature, I strive to create delightful and meaningful books for young readers. With nearly 100 children’s books to my name, I've had the pleasure of collaborating with a diverse range of clients, from self-published authors to publishers like Oxford University Press, Ascension Press, the Concordia Publishing House, and Insight Editions.


My journey in the world of children’s literature has been marked by numerous accolades and achievements, including reaching #1 in three Amazon categories with my authorial debut, which I also illustrated. Over the years, I've honed my craft and gained deep insight into every stage of the book creation process, from manuscript to illustration to publication and marketing.


What sets me apart is not only my artistic skill but also my dedication to understanding the unique essence of each story and bringing it to life through captivating visuals. Whether it's page layout, visual development, or creating print-ready covers and interiors, I am committed to ensuring that every aspect of your book exceeds expectations.


Beyond creating beautiful illustrations, I prioritize forging meaningful connections with my clients, guiding them through the creative process with care and expertise. I recognize that when clients approach me, they entrust me with their dreams, and I consider it a privilege to help turn those dreams into reality.

Izabela can be trusted to create an art piece that exemplifies beauty, true artistic knowledge and skill, and attention to detail. Beyond that, her communication and understanding throughout the process was well above expectations. I couldn’t imagine that hiring another artist would have been as amazing of an experience as working with Izabela.

I found Izabela very responsive and exceptional at seeing the image that I had in my head, and transferring it to a digital image. It was amazing to see. I’m very happy with her work and effort!
